Learn about our new neighbors – black bears!

On Thursday, November 13, 2014, we will present a program on black bears at the Killingworth Firehouse at 7:00 PM.

There have been numerous sightings of black bears in Killingworth over the past ten years. They have been seen robbing bird feeders, taking hornet and bee nests, rummaging through garbage cans and crossing roads (in the very early hours). Fortunately, they do not seem to want to have anything to do with people or pets.

Our speaker, Felicia Ortner, will present her fascinating program on black bears, including discussion of their increasing population in the State and how we can best coexist with them. Felicia is a Master Wildlife Conservationist and bear enthusiast. She will dispel some of the myths associated with bears, provide natural history information, and talk about some of the results of black bear research conducted by wildlife biologists in CT.

This is the annual Fall Program of our Land Trust. No business will be conducted.
