The Michigan Wildlife Conservancy will hold an information session to answer questions about the recent confirmation of a cougar (mountain lion) in Bath Township.

There is no cost to attend the session, and it will take place on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 7:00 PM at the Conservancy's Bengel Wildlife Center, 6380 Drumheller Road, Bath, MI 48808. You can see a map with the location of the information session with this article.

The Center is holding the information session in response to public interest about the mountain lion sighting. The MWC says the organization has been studying cougars in both the Upper and Lower Peninsula of Michigan for 17 years. The organization's director of wildlife programs, Dr. Patrick Rusz, will describe the history, biology, and behavior of the big predatory cats.
