Bear With Us!
May 10 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
This event is free and made possible by the generous support of the MRV Bear Initiative and Northeast Wilderness Trust. Registration Required:
Be prepared for lots of fascinating information on black bear biology and ecology, with emphasis on the field identification of tracks and sign. Sue is very excited about this show because it offers the most comprehensive discussion of bear scent-marking behaviors, illustrated with dozens of her original images. As for living in harmony with black bears, it’s entirely up to us, as this program will solidly demonstrate. “Bear safety” is achieved largely because of what we do out there, whether it be in the wild or around our home and farmyard. It is more about what we can do to minimize the hazards we pose to bears.
As a bonus we will also explore Sue’s adventures studying and photographing grizzly, brown, and polar bears.

What is the MRV Community Black Bear Initiative?
The Fayston, Waitsfield and Warren Conservation Commissions, Moretown Recreation Committee, Friends of the Mad River, Stark Mountain Foundation and Sugarbush Resort’s SEW Committee have formed a committee of volunteers to help address the growing black bear concerns the Mad River Valley has been experiencing over the last few years. Though still in the early stages of planning, the Initiative hopes to develop a centralized web-based education and resource center for the MRV community to learn about black bears in Vermont, develop a community bear ethos about how to live with and protect bears, and increase the community’s understanding of how human actions impact and affect bear behavior. Several other presentations are planned over the next few months.
