The Lower Columbia Basin Audubon Society's April meeting will feature a presentation about grizzly bears by David Knibb, author of Grizzly Wars: The Public Fight over the Great Bear.
He will discuss the grizzly bear recovery program under the Endangered Species Act, then discuss whether there still are grizzlies in the North Cascades, how many, where they might be and what is their future.
Knibb has had three careers: a forester for the U.S. Forest Service, Okano-gan National Forest, at Twisp and Tonasket; a lawyer in a Seattle law firm for 23 years; and a freelance writer for the past 18 years.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday with a brief business meeting and a bird identification segment presented by Nancy LaFramboise at Kennewick First Lutheran Church, 418 N. Yelm St. The speaker usually begins the presentation around 7:45.
Never miss a local story.
