About The Event
Black bears are the smallest of the three bear species found in North America, and the only bear found in Vermont. Black bears prefer wild areas with fewer people, but in recent years, as people have begun to encounter bears more, it is important to understand how to protect them and reduce bear encounters. Join us and VT Fish and Wildlife’s Black Bear Project Leader and Wildlife Biologist, Jaclyn Comeau, while we discuss Vermont’s black bear population, their biology and habitat, and specific actions we can all take to prevent conflicts.
