Magical, Menacing, and Magnificent Wildlife: How to Ensure Their Future in the Gorge
Sense of Place Lecture Series (free online event via Zoom)
The Columbia River is home to some incredible wildlife species; some are unknown to many, while others may be common species, with surprisingly fascinating stories. Who are these creatures that share our home? Why are some considered magnificent, and others are feared or even misunderstood? Wildlife biologist and longtime Gorge resident, Bill Weiler, will highlight some of our local fauna and share some hopeful scenarios about how we can keep wildlife thriving throughout the Gorge, especially if we all contribute.
Bill Weiler has lived on 20 acres northeast of Lyle, WA for 30 years. He worked as a wildlife biologist with both the Washington and Oregon Departments of Fish & Wildlife. Bill created the environmental education non-profit Columbia Gorge Ecology Institute in Hood River 25 years ago, and he currently works as the Education Coordinator for the Sandy River Watershed Council. As a wildlife enthusiast, Bill regularly serves as a consultant for Gorge residents needing wildlife surveys or advice regarding animals showing up – sometimes unexpectedly.
This year we are offering free admission to Sense of Place lecture events. However, producing the events is not free. We know it is a challenging time for everyone, but if you are able, please consider making a donation to support the production of this program. We are suggesting $10+ donation for each lecture you attend. We greatly appreciate your support! mtadamsinstitute.org/donate-sense-of-place
