Mountain lions - also known as cougars, pumas, or catamounts - are huge felines who weigh about 150 pounds and have a long tail, unlike the more commonly seen bobcat. Bill Betty, a knowledgeable mountain lion speaker and advocate with more than a dozen personal sightings and close encounters with one of America’s shiest Big Cats, will present photographs and cover all aspects of mountain lion behavior, from reproduction to predation, from life span to habitation.  Learn more about mountain lions and their returning presence in Southern New England. Program starts at 1:00 pm.
