LOOK! THERE’S A BEAR!
FREE BLACK BEAR PROGRAM SPONSORED BY THE PATHFINDER LIBRARY
Lake County, and especially the Baldwin area, has had an unusually large number of bear encounters and sightings in 2016. To help understand these intelligent and powerful animals, the Pathfinder Library has arranged to have Katie Keen, DNR Wildlife Technician, give us a presentation on bears at 6:00 p.m., September 20th, 2016, at the Pleasant Plains Township Hall, 885 8th Street. Katie grew up in Michigan, attended Michigan State, and has been with the DNR since 2004.
The program will include the local history of black bears, their habits and biology, how the DNR manages them, and tips for what you can do to discourage bears from visiting your property. Katie will talk about how to identify bear tracks and scat, and bring artifacts including a skull and hide. Questions and observations will be welcomed. We look forward to seeing you there!
