Know the Bear Facts

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Speaking of nature series - Welcome Michelle Smith, Information and Education Coordinator for NJDEP’s Division of Fish and Wildlife as she presents "Know the Bear Facts." As black bears have now been confirmed in all 21 of New Jersey's counties, residents are encouraged to become better educated about this important component of the state's natural heritage. The program offers information about living with black bears, the natural history and biology of bears in the Garden State, and the results of past and current black bear research. It also includes practical information on coexisting with black bears, such as steps one should follow in order to ensure that bears do not become a nuisance animal in the neighborhood. Register by calling 609-261-2495. Speaking of Nature series continues with different topics on January 25 and February 25.
