In the summer of 2009, a young mountain lion left his home in the Black Hills of South Dakota and set out on a cross-country journey that covered two years and more than 2,000 miles, passing within 30 miles of Manhattan before ending tragically on a Connecticut parkway. 

In two free presentations, Will Stolzenburg, author of Heart of a Lion: A Lone Cat’s Walk Across America, incorporates images, film, and firsthand accounts of those whose lives were touched by the record-setting cat. 


Seating for the lectures is limited and available on a first-come basis. Arrive one hour early to assure seating. Early arrivals can save one seat each and then may explore the Visitor & Education Center or Indigo Trail before the lecture starts. Saved seats must be filled 15 minutes before lecture time or risk reassigning.
