Wednesday, January 10, 7pm, Lecture: Bears in Your Backyard with Mianus River Gorge’s Preserve Manager Budd Veverka at the Katonah Village Library.
Join Bedford Audubon for an in-depth look at a potential new arrival to backyards around our region, black bears. Budd’s long-time study of the species and first-hand experience along with his outgoing and personable nature will make this an enjoyable presentation. From walking your dog to feeding the birds, learn how to peacefully co-exist with these large charismatic mammals. Discover the research being conducted by Mianus River Gorge and their regional partners to map black bear occurrences and movements in Westchester, Putnam, and Fairfield Counties. Get an understanding of black bear biology and why black bears are moving into our area. Free. No need to register—we’ll see you at 7 for refreshments and the lecture will begin at 7:30.
