Living with Black Bears


Living with Black Bears in New York State

  • Thursday, January 14, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM

Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County

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.

In this presentation, Dr. Curtis will discuss bear biology, behavior, and ways to reduce potential human-bear conflict.This is via zoom. See registration below.

Dr. Paul D. Curtis is a Professor of Wildlife Science in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment at Cornell University.
