Discovering the world of pumas

For millennia, mountain lions have roamed the valleys and cliffs of the Yuba watershed, living, breeding and surviving in northern California’s Sierra foothills.

The Yuba Watershed Institute is offering a class on mountain lions Saturday. In the class, attendees will take a peek into the private world of puma color through learning about its natural history, finding its signs of passage on the landscape, and following its often elusive trails.

The class is from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center.

This class will involve some walking. Participants should be able to hike at least a few miles if need be. It will also involve prolonged periods of concentration and focus as participants follow the often obscure trails encountered in the field. Bring plenty of water and sun protection.

The cost is $25 for Yuba Watershed Institute members, $30 general; space is limited.
