Ventura, CA – Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks is organizing a short workshop on LIVING WITH WILDLIFE, a Zoom event on May 12th at 6 pm.  Residents are invited to Zoom in and learn about living alongside the diverse wildlife of Ventura County, from mountain lions, bobcats, and coyotes, to bears, raccoons, opossums, birds, and snakes. Hear from experts about measures to avoid encounters and what to do when wildlife enters our neighborhoods and yards.

Supervisor Parks states, “We are so fortunate to live next to open space, but sometimes that means we have an occasional encounter with wildlife in our residential areas.  Knowing what actions we can take for positive outcomes can ensure the safety of people, pets, and wildlife.”

LIVING WITH WILDLIFE presenters include Kirby Bartlett, Fish and Wildlife Biologist, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Jessica West, Human-Wildlife Conflict Specialist, California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Zoom login information can be found online at
