There’s going to be a special talk on efforts to restore the cougar population in our part of the U.S. this coming Tuesday.

“Bringing Back the Legend: Cougar Recovery in Eastern North America” will feature Eastern Cougar Foundation President Christopher Spatz, who has conducted remote camera surveys at High Point State Park and at Minnewaska State Park Preserve in search of the cougar. Reviewing his survey findings with cougar biology, behavior and their current range dispersal, Spatz will explain why cougar restorations are key to the health of our eastern forests.

The talk will be held Tuesday, July 13, at 7 p.m. at the Essex County Environmental Center. It costs $6 per child and $8 per adult and advance registration is required. For information, call 973-228-8776.
