Learn about North Cascades Forest Predators Tonight, February 11, in Bend


Oregon Wildlife invites you to learn about the forest predators of Oregon’s North Cascades through a presentation by wildlife researchers Tim Hiller and Jamie McFadden-Hiller at Central Oregon Community College. 

Admission is only $5 per person for the “Trekking High for Forest Predators in Oregon’s North Cascades” presentation. Registration is required. Register online at Oregon Wildlife’s website; www.owhf.org.  For more information or questions, contact Oregon Wildlife at 503-255-6059.

This and all other talks in Oregon Wildlife’s Discovering Wildlife Lecture Series will be held in Hitchcock Auditorium (in the Pioneer Building), on the Central Oregon Community College campus, 2600 NW College Way, Bend.

Forest carnivores of conservation concern in Oregon include wolverines, American marten and Sierra Nevada red fox. Oregon Wildlife, ODFW and a host of other partners are supporting a two-year forest carnivore monitoring study by Tim and Jamie that began in September 2012 primarily within the wilderness areas of Oregon’s northern Cascades.

“There’s a lot we don’t know or understand about Oregon’s forest carnivores. This study, by Tim Hiller and Jamie McFadden-Hiller, is adding significantly to our knowledge base, and will help guide future research and management decisions,” said Tim Greseth, Oregon Wildlife’s Executive Director.

The last Bend wildlife talk, in the 2014 Series, will be held Tuesday March 11 on woodpeckers and their importance to multiple tree cavity-dwelling species. Presenter is professional naturalist Steve Shunk who, from his base in Central Oregon, has been studying the ecology of western forests for the past 16 years.

Oregon Wildlife empowers the lasting conservation of fish and wildlife and the enjoyment of our natural resources.  Since its founding, Oregon Wildlife has directed millions of dollars in funding to fish, wildlife and habitat projects throughout Oregon.
