Living with Wildlife in the Okanogan 
with Jeff Heinlen

Friday, January 5, 2018 

Black bear cub near Molson, WA

Living out in nature can be beautiful and serene, but it can also bring some surprises and challenges when people’s daily lives interface with wildlife. There are specific things you can do to help make your life work well with wildlife around, even before any encounters occur. On Friday, January 5, 2018, WDFW Wildlife Biologist Jeff Heinlen will share ideas and suggestions about living with wildlife in a way that supports both human needs and the health of the ecosystem. Heinlen will discuss living with animals from birds and bats to bears and bobcats and things in between.
