How to Humanely Co-exist with Neighborhood Wildlife, a discussion about wildlife/human conflicts will be presented on April 5 from 7 to 8:15 p.m. at the Rosehill Community Center.

Ashley Walsh, Wildlife Admission Specialist at PAWS, will discuss how to deal with wildlife and human interactions in a humane way.

About 150 years ago or so, almost all of Mukilteo was covered with either forest or wetland.  In other words, everything was wildlife habitat. Nowadays, wildlife habitat is fragmented, and it is not unusual to find wildlife in our backyards.

All sorts of wildlife live in your neighborhood that you were not necessarily expecting or don’t know how to handle. Coyotes, for example, are in the local news more frequently than ever. They are seen and reported with greater regularity. Have you ever had raccoons live under your entryway? Do deer eat your plants? So how can you deal with these and other backyard animals? Bring your questions for Walsh and enjoy this free, informative evening.

Wildlife are usually an enjoyable part of your backyard. You can make the most of your patch of potential habitat by learning about gardening for wildlife and possibly even getting your yard certified as wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Visit the Mukilteo Wildlife Habitat table at the presentation or check our website at www/http:mukilteowildlife.org.

This event is sponsored by the Mukilteo Wildlife Habitat Project. Use of Rosehill Community Center is made possible by a grant from the City of Mukilteo. Rosehill is located at 304 Lincoln Ave.
