  • Durango Public Library 1900 East 3rd Avenue Durango, CO, 81301 United States (map)


Presented by: Wild Nature Media, Rocky Mountain Wildlife Alliance and Colorado Parks and Wildlife

The Colorado black bear is an incredible animal. The largest predator in the state, and also the most vulnerable as its calorie requirements skyrocket prior to denning for the winter. An omnivore, hibernator, and an opportunistic forager are just a few characteristics that make this bruin worth leaning into and learning about.

In this presentation you'll learn about Black Bear Ecology, tips for understanding Black Bears and avoiding conflicts in your own neighborhood, bear management in the state, and their unique habits and habitat requirements.
