Management of black bears in New York State is a success story. During the past decade, populations in the southern part of the state have grown, and bears have expanded their range northward.
Bears are becoming more abundant near suburban communities and conflicts between bears and people sometimes occur. The most frequent concerns are damage to bird feeders and bears rummaging through trash.
The Central Library of Rochester & Monroe County will host on online presentation on Living with Black Bears in New York on Thursday, January 14th from 6 to 7:15 pm on Zoom.
In his presentation, Dr. Paul Curtis from Cornell’s Department of Natural Resources & the Environment. will discuss bear biology, bear behavior, and ways to reduce potential human-bear conflict.
