BEAR the Truth About BLACK BEARS!

TUESDAY, FEB 4TH, 7PM

MATTHEWS COMMUNITY CENTER

100 McDOWELL ST, MATTHEWS

BLACK BEARS: Dispelling the Myths for Peaceful Coexistence Did you know that black bears are basically shy animals?

Join HAWK as Deborah Bordner, Education Outreach Speaker with the North American Bear Center and Wildlife Research Institute dispells myths and misconceptions that abound for black bears replacing them with scientific facts. As more people move into black bear country we need to learn to co-exist. We will discuss population numbers, mgmt. tools and hibernation facts for black bears in NC as well as throughout North America. We'll listen to some common vocalizations and talk about their physical makeup. And lastly we'll discuss what to do if you encounter a black bear. Deborah has been a volunteer with the North American Bear Center and Wildlife Research Institute since 2010. She began as a den cam observer where she observed and documented the behavior of a wild black bear in her den and her interactions with her first born cub. She is currently an Education Outreach Speaker.
