Summer Series schedule changed
KINGMAN - Due to conflicts with work responsibilities, the Arizona Game and Fish Department has slightly altered its Summer Wildlife Series schedule for the next two presentations.
Operation Game Thief, originally slated for Thursday, May 20, has been moved to June 3, and the presentation on Wildlife Adaptation will be held on Thursday, according to Zen Mocarski, public information officer for the Game and Fish Kingman office.
"These things can happen," Mocarski said. "Fortunately, we were able to make a quick switch and we'll still be good to go on Thursday night."
The presentations, hosted by the Mohave County Library in Kingman at 3269 Burbank, are held on the first and third Thursday of each month from May through August from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
While open and free to the public, seating capacity is limited to 52 and is handled on a first-come, first-served basis. The first presentation on venomous critters did reach capacity.
For wildlife adaptations, Mocarski will discuss a number of different animals and the adaptations made to allow for life in Arizona.
"There are some pretty amazing facts I think people will find interesting," Mocarski said. "The problem isn't finding enough information but keeping the presentation down to one hour. Life in Arizona presents some unique challenges for wildlife to survive."
Still to come in the eight-part series is: Operation Game Thief (June 3), Fishing Arizona (June 17), Hummingbirds (July 1), GPS (Global Positioning System) 101 (July 15), Captures and Transplants (Aug. 5), and Invasive Species (Aug. 19).
