Learn about cougars in ‘Light of the Moon’ series

SEQUIM — The Dungeness River Audubon Center has brought back the “Learn by the Light of the Moon” speaker series with a new lineup.

The next series meeting is at 7 p.m. today (Tuesday, July 16) at the Dungeness River Audubon Center’s outdoor amphitheater in Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road.

The series provides an opportunity for the community to hear from local naturalists and scientists who are “working to better understand the world around us,” organizers said in a press release.

Mark Elbroch, director and lead scientist with Panthera’s Puma Program, will offer a visual and anecdotal presentation on the Olympic Peninsula’s largest carnivore, the cougar.

Appropriate for all ages, his presentation will explain how cougars hunt, which prey they prefer, how often they feed and how cougar hunting behaviors fit into larger ecosystems.

For more information, call the center at 360-681-4076 or email at River [email protected].
