Washington's Large Carnivores

Presented by Lorna and Darrell Smith

Lorna and Darrell Smith, longtime wildlife experts and Port Townsend residents, are dedicated to improving public understanding of black bears, cougars, grizzly bears, and gray wolves across Washington State. They will discuss their work with the nonprofit Western Wildlife Outreach, which aims to address public concerns about these iconic animals and create wildlife-safe communities, while working to restore and maintain healthy populations of these species who have long inhabited the Pacific Northwest.  Lorna and Darrell were long-time PAS members until they left Snohomish County for Costa Rica.
