There is good evidence that some cougars 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 confirmation 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!

Tickets for this program are $15 for adults and $10 for students.  For more information to to the website for Fairlee Community Arts (FCA) at www.fairleearts.org.
