Mountain Lion Field Seminar
Runs through Sunday, April 11th, 2010
Time & Place
Front Range Community College Room RP 110 Field Portion at City of Fort Collins, Bobcat Ridge Natural Area
Course Description: Spend two days with biologists Dr. Don Hunter and Caroline Krumm learning about Colorado's top predator, the mountain lion (Puma concolor). Instructors will take students into the field for hands on instruction in the tools and methods used in research and management. In addition to an academic overview, students will receive practical instruction on how to “read” the signs left by mountain lions. After taking the course, students will be better equipped to gain an understanding of how the mountain lion fits into the wildland and urban ecosystems, including its relationship with the people and communities of the Front Range.
Each day begins at FRCC with a morning of lectures and presentations that cover mountain lion ecology, such as physical characteristics, habitat preferences, prey base, ecological niche, life history details, and human-lion interaction. In the afternoon the class ventures into the natural area, learning basic habitat characterization, prey identification, mountain lion movement, remote camera trapping, and radio telemetry.
Note: The seminar will include moderate hikes of less than 4 miles per day; for details on Bobcat Ridge Natural Areas see: http://www.fcgov.com/naturalareas/finder/bobcat

Humane Society presents talk on mountain lions
Runs through Wednesday, June 9th, 2010
Time & Place
Auditorium at the Peninsula Humane Society at 12 Airport Boulevard - San Mateo, California
San Mateo County residents will have a glimpse into the life of a typical mountain lion at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9, in the auditorium at the Peninsula Humane Society at 12 Airport Blvd. in San Mateo. Woodside, Portola Valley and parts of Atherton are mountain lion country and, as has been documented more than once in The Almanac, residents have had close encounters. A lion attacked a goat in a Portola Valley back yard in February, only to be scared off by the homeowner. In March, a lion casually strolled up the front steps and through the yard of a Woodside psychotherapist's home while she was in session, with the result that she put up a warning in her waiting room. Lion sightings have been up significantly in The Almanac's circulation area. Does your yard or deck have occasional visits by a tawny 150-pound feline with a vertical leap capability of 12 feet to 15 feet? Do you have questions about living where lions also roam?
The talk, titled "Mountain Lions: Elusive Residents of the Bay Area," is meant to help people understand the role of the big cats in the region's ecosystem.
Yiwei Wang, a humane society volunteer and doctoral student in the Bay Area Puma Project, will present the talk. It will include a brief history of the relationship between people and mountain lions in California, as well as tips on coexisting safely with the animals.
The Humane Society requests a donation of $5. Call Amy Differding at 340-7022, ext. 369, for more information.
