Living With Lions: Co-existence with an
Iconic American carnivore
Living With Lions is the topic of this month’s August 1 evening meeting of the Oakmont Kiwanis Club at 5:30 PM in the Berger Center, The public is cordially invited to attend and find out much more about the natural surroundings in which the Oakmont and Kenwood communities are immersed.
In California, mountain lions are at the top of the food chain and play critical roles in the maintenance and functioning of our natural ecosystems. Yet mountain lions themselves live a fragile existence as more of us choose to live and play in wild places. Audubon Canyon Ranch is studying our region’s mountain lions to identify priority habitats and key wildlife corridors and to promote ecosystem conservation throughout our region. Audubon Canyon Ranch’s Wildlife Ecologist Alex Hettena, Research Associate with Dr. Quinton Martins, will provide an update on the research results of Living with Lions, ACR’s mountain lion research and education project. This has included tagging mountain lions and following their movements to learn where they roam throughout our region
Join us at the Oakmont Berger Center from 5:30 – 7:00 PM for an evening of learning and discussion around co-existing peaceably in lion country.
