Coming Soon: The Cougar Returns to the East

Date: 
Friday, June 28, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Location: 
Blue Hill Heritage Trust, 157 Hinkley Ridge Road, Blue Hill, Maine

There is no question about it. Cougars are not only being seen in eastern North America, some are attempting to recolonize their former habitats.  Where once it was flatly dismissed as an impossibility in the so-called “developed” east, scientists have now documented cougar dispersals and even occupancy in a growing list of eastern states and provinces.  Join us for a magnificently illustrated introduction to cougar biology and ecology in the broad diversity of habitats where Sue has studied them, from Alberta to the Arizona/Mexico border.  We will also get the low-down regarding the latest confirmations of cougars in the east, including the recently documented suitability of a substantial amount of wild habitats from Manitoba to Louisiana and Maine to Georgia.  It is only a matter of time!
