Please join the Underwood Conservation District and Todd Jacobsen, Wildlife Conflict Specialist with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, for a free, informational workshop as he presents information, tips, and tools on how to live with wildlife in the Gorge.
The Columbia River Gorge is an ecologically rich and unique area of the Pacific Northwest. Regardless of how one experiences the Gorge, the likelihood of encountering some of Washington’s diverse wildlife species is high, and often what draws people to this area.
This presentation will focus on some of the large carnivores that inhabit this region and how residents and visitors, along with their pets and livestock, can coexist with these animals. Special focus will be on livestock husbandry in relation to living with large carnivores.
Todd Jacobsen has served as the Wildlife Conflict Specialist and Private Lands Biologist for the WDFW in southwestern Washington since 2016, has an extensive background as an avid hunter, fisherman, backpacker, and naturalist, and enjoys working with landowners on a wide variety of wildlife and habitat issues and projects.
All those interested in learning more about native carnivores in the Gorge are encouraged to attend. The workshop will be the first in a Winter Workshop Series held by Underwood Conservation District in the coming months. Please visit the Underwood Conservation District website (http://ucdwa.org/) or call the District office at 509-493-1936 for more information.
