Predators, prey discussed at Tuesday lecture

PORT ANGELES — Deer and cougars on the North Olympic Peninsula will be the topic for the next lecture in Olympic National Park’s Perspectives Winter Speaker Series on Tuesday.

In “Predators and Prey: Columbian Black-Tailed Deer and Cougar Research on the Olympic Peninsula,” Kim Sager-Fradkin, wildlife biologist with the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, will share the results of a four-year study examining patterns of fawn and buck mortality on the North Olympic Peninsula, and will provide preliminary results on a study designed to answer questions about cougar population genetics, movement patterns and prey selection.

The talk will be at 7 p.m. at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

The final lecture in the series will be “A Witness to Change” at 7 p.m. April 9 at the library.

Janis Burger, an interpreter at Olympic National Park’s Hurricane Ridge, will share photos and experiences gleaned throughout a 37-year career as a seasonal biological technician and longtime park interpreter.

The Perspectives Winter Speaker Series is sponsored by Olympic National Park, the Friends of Olympic National Park and the North Olympic Library System.
