Talk about black bears planned
The Kent Memorial Library will present a program about black bears June 11 at 2 p.m.
The 60- to 90-minute presentation at the Main Street library will focus on the natural history of black bears in Connecticut, an overview of black bear habitat, diet, behavior, reproduction and current research efforts.
It will also provide practical recommendations for optimum coexistence with our black bear population.
Black bear artifacts are shared with the audience.
The presentation is suitable for ages 12 and up.
Paul Colburn, certified master wildlife conservationist for the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, will present the program.
Colburn is responsible for the adult education program that trains participants in the fields of wildlife management, natural history and interpretation.
The purpose of the program is to develop a volunteer corps capable of providing education, outreach, and service for state agencies, environmental organizations, libraries, schools, and the general public.
A $5 donation is suggested.
