Course description

Urban wildlife is thriving, and we’re not talking about just raccoons and squirrels. In the last two decades, big predators have been reestablishing in the midwest. Populations of bobcat, mountain lion, wolf, and bear are on the rise.  Wildlife biologist Chris Anchor will discuss what biologists are learning about the mega-predators that are returning to the area, and what this means for both our natural areas and our neighborhoods.
