Cary Institute in Millbrook Presents Getting Along with Our Bear Neighbors

Join the Cary Institute for a special presentation on black bears by conservation scientist Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant. 

Anyone who has surprised a black bear in their backyard is aware of the overlap between human and bear habitat. Wynn-Grant will share insights into black bear behavior and ecology, and provide advice on what we can do to improve relations with our ursine neighbors.

In her position at the American Museum of Natural History's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, Wynn-Grant studies the movement patterns and behavior of black bears with the goal of guiding peaceful human-bear coexistence.

Seating is first come first served. The event is free and open to the public.  

Doors open at 6:30 pm. Aldo Leopold Society members may contact Vicki Doyle for reserved seating at 845 677-7600 x203.
