Bobcats to take pride of place during North Conway presentation

June 28, 2017 by  

Next month, an event has been planned that may be of interest to any North Conway residents who want to learn more about ecology and local wildlife.

The Weather Discovery Center, which is located on the White Mountain Highway, will serve as the venue for a discussion about bobcats, which are considered to be one of the most elusive creatures in the state.

New Hampshire State Biologist Patrick Tate will serve as the facilitator, and will lead his audience through a presentation of the findings of his research into these wild felines. He will talk about their habits, habitats, and population levels, with much of this data being collected through trapping and collaring, as well as a program of volunteer spotters.

The guests at the lecture will also have an opportunity to find out about methods that can help to reduce the numbers of unwanted interactions between humans and bobcats. An area print company can be called upon to produce handouts and other materials for an educational event such as this.

The presentation, which has been dubbed ‘Science in the Mountains – Tracking Bobcats in the Granite State’ has been planned for the evening of July 12 at the Weather Discovery Center. There is no fee being charged for attendance, and anyone with questions has been asked to contact Brent Bronwell at the Mount Washington Observatory at bbrownell@mountwashington.org.
