The Sedona Muses and the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) will present David Mattson, Ph.D., Research Wildlife Biologist, USGS, at their third 2013 lecture on Monday, March 11, 7 p.m. at the Sedona United Methodist Church, 110 Indian Cliffs Road and SR 179.
Mattson's subject is Mountain Lions in Our Backyard. He will describe the behaviors and distributions of mountain lions living on the edge of cities like Flagstaff, Tusayan, and Sedona, highlighting the surprising lack of conflict as well as factors that can increase the usually low risk of threatening encounters or attacks.
Information will also be presented on how to safely manage a close encounter with a mountain lion if and when such an unusual occasion occurs.
Tickets: $6/MNA members, $7/non-members at Weber's IGA in the Village of Oak Creek, Bashas' in Sedona, by calling 928-284-2875 or at the door the night of the lecture. Proceeds benefit the Museum of Northern Arizona.
