Black Bears in Massachusetts

On Friday, December 8, from 6:30 – 7:30, the Marion Natural History Museum will welcome Steven Wright and Jason Zimmer, wildlife biologists with the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife. They will be giving a presentation on the Black Bears in Massachusetts.

            Black bears are found throughout much of the state, including southeastern Massachusetts. Let’s learn what to do if you see a bear and what steps to take to protect your home and property. We’ll hear a little about the life history of the black bear and why they’re here.

            Let’s learn about our bear population so that we can be respectful toward our wild neighbors. We may need to learn to change our behavior, because bears aren’t going to change theirs.

            To RSVP, please go to the Marion Natural History Museum website:
