Wild San Juan Lectures with Wolf Hollow’s Education Curator Shona Aitken are back. These free lectures take place at 7 p.m. at The Whale Museum in Friday Harbor on the following dates:
Tuesday, April 24: Living with Wildlife on the San Juans
Thursday, May 24: Dealing with deer
Thursday, June 21: Swallows and sparrows, flickers and flycatchers
Thursday, July 19: Marine mammals
Thursday, August 23: A critter’s eye view of your house

The lecture series focuses on living in harmony with wildlife. Topics will explore local wildlife species and how human impacts which may harm these wildlife and their habitats can be reduced. These impacts can include everything from removing nests/nesting material when gardening to vehicle strikes. Through becoming more aware of the impacts of our actions, visitors and residents of San Juan Island can learn to be better stewards to the wildlife that share their home with us. The first lecture will focus on the different kinds of wildlife found here on the island and human/wildlife issues that might arise.
This lecture series is free and open to the public.
