Living with Black Bears in New York State (virtual) -

Tuesday, July 20 from 2:00-3:00 PM

For Adults

*Registration is required & opens July 6*

A link to the virtual meeting will be emailed the morning of July 20. Dr. Paul D. Curtis, Professor of Wildlife Science in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment at Cornell University, will explain how the management of black bears in New York State is a success story. During the past decade, populations in the southern part of the state have grown, and bears have expanded their range northward. An abundance of bears in the Adirondacks and northern NYS has remained relatively stable. Bears can now be seen in almost any NYS county, and they are becoming more abundant near suburban communities. Consequently, conflicts between bears and people sometimes occur. Dr. Curtis will touch on bear biology, behavior, and ways to reduce potential human-bear conflicts.
