LIVING LANDS SERIES: ADK BEAR BEHAVIOR WITH JIM STICKLES, DEC WILDLIFE MANAGER

June 27, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Throughout NY black bear populations are either stable or increasing, but where bears and people overlap, there are sure to be conflicts. In the Adirondacks, we have two fronts where we try to manage bear-human conflicts, the front country and the back country. Regardless of location, the problem is almost always the same, easily accessible food. Jim Stickles, Big Game Biologist with DEC, will discuss basic bear biology, the role of bear hunting, strategies to keep food inaccessible, the consequences when people fail to secure food sources, and why moving bears generally doesn’t work.

Join us every Wednesday evening (except for July 4) starting June 27th as the Lake George Land Conservancy, along with Stewart’s Shops, presents our FREE summer series Living Lands. This weekly presentation series will take an exclusive and up-close look at the wildlife and people who utilize the land of Lake George and the Adirondacks, past and present! Presentations begin at 5:30 pm and are held at the LGLC office in Bolton Landing.

Many thanks to Stewart’s Shops for sponsoring our 2018 series!

Advance registration is REQUIRED and is available on LGLC’s website.
