Montana House welcomes local author Jim Williams who wrote Path of the Puma – The Remarkable Resilience of the Mountain Lion. Jim’s talk will begin at 4:00 pm in the Kintla Camp event room at Montana House in Apgar Village. In 2018 Patagonia Inc. published Path of the Puma which tells the story of mountain lion conservation in the Americas and highlights some adventures Jim experienced while working with wildlife biologists in Chile and Argentina. Jim will take us on a visual tour of puma conservation in the wilds of Patagonia Argentina, then back up to Montana and the Crown of the Continent, and he will end in Chilean Patagonia. After the presentation Jim will be available to sign books.
Jim is an award-winning, professional wildlife biologist who has worked for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks for the last 28 years. While in graduate school, Jim studied mountain lion ecology on Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front and has focused on mountain lion and other wildlife conservation issues ever since. For example, Jim’s experience as a wildlife biologist/conservationist includes working with pronghorn antelope, black bear, mountain goat, grizzly bear and wolf. He has worked with private agricultural landowners on wildlife tolerance issues, implemented various wildlife research projects, and developed new conservation easements and wildlife management areas. More recently he has been working with wildlife biologists in Chile and Argentina on wildlife conservation projects. Jim and his wife Melora live and work in the Flathead Valley.
