Wildlife tracker David Moskowitz will give a lecture and slide show at 6 p.m. March 28 at the Tamástslikt Cultural Institute in Pendleton.
Moskowitz will focus on the wildlife in the Northwest as he tracks and identifies wildlife indigenous to the region. The event is free. The institute is next to Wildhorse Casino off Interstate 84.
Moskowitz is the author of Wildlife of the Pacific Northwest: Tracking and Identifying Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians and Invertebrates. He'll also soon publish the book Wolves in the Pacific Northwest.
He is a professional wildlife tracker, photographer and outdoor educator who has been studying the wildlife of the Northwest since 1995. He has contributed his expertise to a variety of regional studies as well, as in the Canadian and U.S. Rocky Mountains.
He uses noninvasive tracking skills to study wildlife and is a champion for conservation.
"Tracking is accessible to the masses," Moskowitz says in a press release. "It's a simple way for people to inform themselves about what's going on in a place they care about, and may encourage them to take an active role in helping make sure these places are around for generations to come."
