KINGMAN - It may not have the same ring as "Last of the Summer Wine," but the last installment of the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Summer Wildlife Series takes place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Kingman-Mohave County Library, 3269 Burbank St.

Habitat specialist Dee Kephard of the department's Region 3 Kingman Field Office will discuss "Critters and their Habitat."

"Not all wildlife are as adaptable as a coyote," said Zen Mocarski, program manager for the Kingman Field Office. "Many species have specific habitat needs to survive and, as a result, you can predict what species can be found in a specific area.

"Arizona is diverse and has many habitat islands. Elk, for instance, don't occur statewide, but (at) specific locations where their habitat needs are met."

Kephard, he said, will discuss a variety of wildlife that is closely tied to specific habitats.

"Understanding wildlife needs and behavior is important," said Mocarski. "If you are looking for pronghorn antelope, searching in thick forested areas isn't going to do you much good."

Mocarski said he was pleased with the series' growing popularity as the 2014 season comes to an end.

"It's been great to see this level of interest," he said. "I think this is a great presentation to end the season. It kind of brings all the wildlife into focus because none of the wildlife we've discussed throughout the season can exist without the proper habitat."

Seating is limited to the first 52 people who arrive at the library. Once that number of folks is inside, the doors will be locked.
