In the News: Urban Bobcats



Different wildlife species are appearing more frequently in our urban and suburban settings. You may have heard on the news or read in the paper that even large mammals such as bobcats have been seen in neighborhoods across the state of Texas.

We’ll discuss their specialized structures, habitat requirements, and ways to avoid an encounter. Don’t miss this great opportunity to see a real live bobcat!
