When: Tuesday, February 7, 7pm
Where: Winthrop Barn (Get Directions)

Scott and Amy Fitkin will present on the history and ongoing efforts for restoring and managing native wildlife in the North Cascades Ecosystem. The program will emphasize projects involving the Methow Watershed and many of its charismatic species including wolves, lynx, wolverines, beavers, bears, and more. They will also discuss the role of the Conservancy's Campaign for Sunny M Ranch in preserving wildlife habitat, maintaining landscape connectivity, and coexisting with wildlife in the Methow.

Scott Fitkin is a 34-year veteran of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and has worked in the Methow for 27 years. Scott has worked on a wide variety of species including several rare carnivores, and has been heavily involved in habitat conservation efforts locally. Scott's daughter Amy grew up in the Valley and has college training in biology and environmental education with an emphasis on social and environmental justice. She's now thankfully back in the Methow teaching science at Liberty Bell High School. She has worked seasonally on projects with lynx, beavers, and western gray squirrels. She also enjoys the rare distinction of having once helped radio-collar a wolverine on Christmas eve.
