HCT Hosts Black Bear Presentation

bearHARWICH – Remember the black bear that roamed Cape Cod in 2012?

Why did he visit and could it happen again?

To learn about the social behavior of black bears, join black bear expert Ben Kilham, September 24 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. in the Harwich Community Center.

Known as the “Bear Man,” Dr. Kilham has been studying black bears for 25 years and also consults on panda reintroduction in China.

Dr. Kilham will share his observations about black bear communication, home range, how they den, what they eat, and more.

He will also share interesting stories about his work in rehabilitating orphaned bear cubs for release back into the wild.

Featured in National Geographic and Discovery Channel documentaries, Dr. Kilham brings a unique understanding of black bear behavior because of his scientific work and rehabilitation experience.

He will also have his books available for sale, including Out on a Limb: What Black Bears have Taught Me about Intelligence & Intuition.

Admission to the event is $5 per person and is sponsored by the Harwich Conservation Trust.

Since 1988, the nonprofit Harwich Conservation Trust has been preserving land that protects woods water, wildlife and the shared quality of life in Harwich on Cape Cod.
