The webinar will include photos and videos from Pratt’s extensive encounters with mountain lions, bears, and other animals. Pratt will also share tips on how to foster a coexistence ethic with wildlife starting with tasks you can accomplish in your own backyard to help wild animals thrive. 

Viewers can also look forward to hearing about Pratt’s new book, I Heart Wildlife: A Guided Activity Journal for Connecting with the Wild World. Pratt will guide attendees through a couple of sample exercises from the interactive journal during the Zoom program.

Weekly Poll
Is the state being forthcoming enough with vaccine information?

No. They need to be transparent about why each county gets the amount it does.
It's not really in their hands; the federal government is the one making state allocations.
Yes. The weekly Facebook press conferences make information accessible and clear.
I have no idea—I don't keep up with the state's announcements!
