Enjoy complimentary appetizers with special drinks and menu items available for purchase. Nov. 5 - Olympic National Park Mountain Goat Relocation Project with Richard Harris, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Mountain goats are not native to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, but in the 1920s appealing habitat and desire for hunting opportunities led sportsmen to introduce them from Alaska into what later became the Olympic National Park Nov. 12 – The Cascade Red Fox and Wolverine with Jocelyn Akins PhD, Cascade Carnivore Project Conservation Director. "“The Cascade red fox is an extremely rare native fox living in our Cascade Mountains and is unique to Washington. This fox has an extremely big home range and a low genetic diversity –we don’t even know how many there are, often seeing the same fox in different locations,” explains Akins. Nov. 19 - I-90 Wildlife Overpass & Habitat Connectivity with Peter Singleton -USFS, Patricia Garvey-Darda -Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, Brian White -WA Dept. of Transportation’s I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Highway Reconstruction Project. Animals need to move! Nov. 26 - Grouse of the Columbia Basin and Habitat Connectivity with Michael Schroeder, Upland Bird Research Scientist, WA Department of Fish and Wildlife. “Few animal species reflect the history of North America, diversity of behavior, and expansive connected landscapes more than grouse. Washington State is fortunate to have seven grouse species ranging from greater sage-grouse in the lower elevations to white-tailed ptarmigan at the highest elevations,” tells Schroeder. Series includes all four Tuesdays and is limited to 30 participants. Please register soon.
