The Big Three exhibit will launch on Earth Day, April 22, at 1:00 p.m.
In the fall of 2020 Cortes Islanders reported that bears were damaging property and stealing chickens. Laurel Bohart, our Natural History Curator, saw these events as the perfect catalyst for creating a new Wild Cortes exhibit in the Linnaea Education Centre. The exhibit features Cortes Islandís top three predators (bears, cougars, and wolves), as well as information on co-existing with these majestic animals while keeping them wild.
The Big Three!! exhibit will launch on Earth Day, April 22, at 1:00 p.m. Join us then, or later during regular opening hours, to learn about historical and recent accounts of local human/animal encounters, watch an award-winning mini-documentary, view images taken on local trail-cams, and discover what Wild Cortes** and its partners have waiting for you to experience.
