Predator & Prey – Lynx and Snowshoe Hare

Be prepared not only to learn a lot, but have some fun along the way!
May 01, 2012

Deep in the forest of the Pacific NW one of the world’s most beautiful cats is on the hunt for its elusive prey.

Those deep forests are where you can often find University of Washington Wildlife Science Professor Aaron Wirsing tracking that cat – the Lynx – who is often on the trail of a Snowshoe Hare.

At 7 p.m. on Thursday May 10, 4th graders to adults are invited to join Aaron at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County’s Mc Collum Park (600 –128th Street SE, Everett WA 98208 – driving directions:


The  show will begin deep in the North Cascades.

There, Aaron will describe the life history of Lynx – how long they live, their size, how far they range, where mothers den, a glimpse of kittens, and their favorite food – the Snowshoe Hare.

The fast paced and very, very nervous life history of the hare will also be presented along with the complex and very mysterious web of life in deep forests.

Aaron will be presenting his recent Lynx and Snowshoe Hare research in an entertaining fashion – so be prepared not only to learn a lot, but have some fun along the way!

This event is sponsored by Snohomish County Parks and Recreation and the Adopt A Stream Foundation.
