Bears in Massachusetts
Nov 22 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

bearsFrom the 1970s to today, the black bear population in Massachusetts has grown from about 100 to over 4,000. This makes it very possible to catch a glimpse of a bear while walking down a local trail or maybe even spot one in your own yard. There’s no need to fear, though, as black bears are not naturally fierce. Learn all about this and more with Ralph Taylor as he describes the history of the American black bear in Massachusetts; their common behaviors; when humans and bears have been known to clash; and how to co-exist with these woodland animals.
