Mountaion Lion

Mountain lions in your parks: what you need to know

They’re one of the more magnificent wild creatures found in Sonoma County’s Regional Parks – and one we’re unlikely to ever see. Tawny, majestic and amazingly athletic, mountain lions (also called puma, panther or cougar) are native to California and at home in our rural landscape, including the parks. But by nature, they’re highly elusive. So, lion sightings are extremely rare, even for parks staff and wildlife experts.
