Discussion looks at black bears in area
DUMMERSTON- The Dummerston Conservation Commission is sponsoring a program on Vermont’s black bears on Tuesday, January 14, at 7 pm (snow date Tuesday, January 21) at the Dummerston School.
Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department biologist Jaclyn Comeau will share information about Vermont’s black bears. She will talk about what it takes for black bears to be successful in Vermont, what draws them into our backyards and what we can do to prevent future conflicts between people and bears.
The discussion will focus on issues specific to Dummerston and its surrounding communities, with time for the public to ask questions and share their thoughts.
Since 2012, Comeau has been involved with bear studies, including black bear activity and habitat use via remote camera data and with satellite GPS collars. She coordinates and conducts research evaluating the effects of industrial wind development on black bears. Comeau also assists Vermont residents with resolving human-bear conflicts.
This program is free. Contributions are welcome.
