Free webinar with California environmental leaders discussing mountain lions, bobcats and wildlife crossings
Palo Alto, Calif. – December 6, 2022 — Why did the cougar cross the road? It probably didn’t have a choice and was lucky to make it to the other side. On Thursday, January 19, at 7 p.m. Pacific Time, Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), Land Trust of Santa Cruz County (LTSCC) and National Wildlife Federation (NWF) will host a free webinar with environmental leaders from Northern and Southern California to discuss wildlife linkages and land conservation: “Tails of Two Cities: Wildlife Connectivity from the Bay to LA.”
Panelists will discuss habitat conservation for wildlife, including mountain lions and bobcats, and wildlife linkages, including the Laurel Curve wildlife crossing under Highway 17 between San Jose and Santa Cruz and other projects to improve linkages in Coyote Valley and across the South Bay with a variety of local partners. The panel will also discuss the Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing at Liberty Canyon on the 101 freeway in Central California, as well as broader efforts to support more connected wildlands across California.
