First Tuesday: Lynx and Wildfire in the Methow Valley

The Methow Conservancy First Tuesday speaker series featured a presentation about the Canada lynx research we are conducting in the Methow Valley. The goal of the Lynx Project is to understand how lynx use burned areas, and collect the information needed to recommend management actions for resilient forests and abundant lynx habitat into the future. Carmen Vanbianchi, research director and co-founder of Home Range, gave an overview of the project including stories from the field, images of the 3 adults that were live-trapped during the first winter field season, and a demonstration of how our live traps work to safely capture and release these charismatic cats!
