Our Winter Speaker Series kicks off with Roger Christophersen!

Are you curious about elusive wildlife roaming the North Cascades? Come learn about current wildlife research and monitoring projects and with Roger Christophersen, wildlife biologist at North Cascades National Park Service Complex. Roger will take you exploring and share information on species like wolves and wolverines, explain modern data collecting strategies, and investigate what these data have revealed about wildlife populations. The North Cascades Park Complex encompasses nearly 700,000 acres of stunning landscapes with varied habitats that support a wide array of wildlife species, including over 200 species of birds and 75 species of mammals. The park plays an increasingly important role in conserving species and ecological processes. Although the park is largely protected wilderness, it is not isolated from natural and anthropogenic challenges that threaten the viability of some species. Roger will also speak about current and proposed conservation plans.

This is a free event.
