Black Bear Educational Program, South Bend
Start Date: 10/14/2015Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 10/14/2015End Time: 7:30 PM
Event Description:

The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife will conduct two free educational programs in October to provide the public with information about black bears.


The programs will address sightings this summer of a black bear in northwest Indiana, the first confirmed presence of a wild bear in the state in more than 140 years.


Presentations will cover black bear ecology and behavior, management of black bears, and ways to minimize negative interactions and live safely with bears.


The public will be able to ask questions of wildlife biologists from the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife and Indiana Conservation Officers from the DNR Division of Law Enforcement.

Location for the Oct 14th program is below:


  •  St. Joseph County Public Library (main library, lower level), 304 S. Main Street, South Bend, Indiana, 46601. 

The event runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. local time. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.


Because space is limited, anyone wishing to attend should register using the red icon at top or by calling 317-234-8440.


With black bear populations expanding in several states around Indiana, it is possible other  bears will find their way to Indiana in the coming years.
