Maine residents live in one of the wildest states in the East, yet the beauty of our natural environment makes it easy to forget we have lost many of our iconic wildlife species. Mountain Lions in Maine: Rewilding the Maine Woods is a panel discussion about the challenges involved in bringing large, apex predators, specifically the cougar (mountain lion, puma, panther) and other wildlife back to their native habitat in the Northeast corridor, and how human communities can adapt to co-exist with and even benefit from them.
At DRA’s Darrows Barn on Business Route 1 in Damariscotta on Wednesday, June 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and if available, $10 at the door.
Tickets for the event can be purchased online through Brown Paper Tickets.
