Learn the secrets of the bobcat

Bobcats are the recluses of the woods.

Even seeing a bobcat in the wild is a rare occurrence.

“That does not happen too often,” said Sarvey Wildlife Center’s Kestrel Skyhawk. “They are very, very secretive animals.”

Skyhawk, who has been rehabilitating injured bobcats at Sarvey for several years, will share some secrets about this elusive cat Friday at the Northwest Stream Center.

Visitors will learn about bobcats’ habits and habitat and will get answers to questions such as: How big does a bobcat get? What is their favorite food? Do they have predators? How many kittens do they have? How old do they get? Where do they live? How big is their territory? How did this predator get its name?

This show is presented in partnership with Snohomish County Park and the Adopt A Stream Foundation.

“She will be sharing several entertaining stories about rehabilitating bobcats and some incredible images of these beautiful predators in the wilds of Washington state,” said Adopt A Stream Foundation director Tom Murdoch.

The bobcat program will be held at 7 p.m. Friday in McCollum Park at the NW Stream Center; 600 128th St. SE, Everett. Registration is required by calling 425-316-8592. Admission is $5 for Adopt A Stream Foundation members, $7 for nonmembers.
