Club Hosts Bear Presentation

Aug 28, 2012 12:22PM


The New Jersey Sierra Club South Highlands Group will host a presentation by Elaine Dunn, senior vice president of the New Jersey Bear Education and Resource Group, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., September 19, at Hunterdon Medical Center Auditorium, in Flemington, New Jersey. The free presentation will cover the true nature of black bears.

According to Dr. Lynn Rogers, a world-renowned bear expert, “You have a greater chance of winning the lottery than ever being harmed by a black bear.” Attendees will learn simple steps to lessen the chance of a bear frequenting their neighborhood. The Bear Education and Resource Group’s mission aims to educate residents about black bears, reduce unwarranted fears, promote tolerance of our bear neighbors and foster peaceful coexistence between people and bears. 

At the same location on October 17, the Sierra Club’s South Highlands Group will welcome Terry Stimpfell, the New Jersey Sierra Club fracking issues coordinator, for a talk and presentation.
