Weeks State Park Presents: Coming Soon: The Cougar Comes to the East

Once flatly dismissed as an impossibility, scientists have now documented cougars not only being seen in eastern North America, some are attempting to recolonize their former habitats. This program is a magnificently illustrated introduction to cougar biology and ecology in the broad diversity of habitats from Alberta to the Arizona/Mexico border. Throughout North America, Susan C. Morse of Keeping Track is highly regarded as an expert in natural history and tracking, with more than 40 years of experience monitoring wildlife and interpreting wildlife habitat use. Her research has focused on cougar, bobcat, black bear and Canada lynx.

Weeks State Park summer programs are held on Thursdays at 7pm in the Summit Lodge’s Great Room. Attendance is free and the public is invited to all programs. Call for confirmation of dates and topics.
