Living with Black Bears

Friday, July 12, 2019 - 7:00pm

Join Cary Institute for a presentation by Matt Merchant, Wildlife Biologist at New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Merchant will discuss black bear biology and behavior, including how to best prevent conflicts with bears on the hiking trail and in your own backyard.

Black bear populations have been increasing in New York State since the early 1900s. Not only do bears captivate our imagination, they also indicate forest health. However, more bears means more opportunities for bear-human conflicts. Learn best-practice strategies to stay safe while supporting bear populations.

This event is full, but you can tune in here for a livestream of the talk or on our Facebook page 7:05 EST 7/12.
