Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch of Audubon: Potluck Presentation – Mountain Lion Language

Learn about mountain lion “language” during this presentation by Mark Hart, Arizona Game and Fish Public Information Officer. Secretive and stealthy, mountain lions are rarely seen. However, they are abundant in Southeast Arizona, as documented monthly in residential areas of the Tucson foothills. Although mountain lions are feared by some, bears in Arizona are twice as dangerous as mountain lions.  This presentation examines mountain lion behavior and movement in a way that makes their “language” more understandable.

Event will begin at 5pm with the potluck dinner beginning at about 5:30 (please wait for all the guest to arrive – we’ll announce when it’s time to eat!). The presentation will immediately follow the meal.

Come join us, invite a friend, and bring a dish to share. Also, don’t forget to bring some food items to donate to the Santa Cruz food bank!

(RSVP required. Contact Suzanne Wilcox at to sign up or for more information.)
