Columbian white-tail deer and Black Bear Topics of June 23 Presentation in Portland

 
June 14, 2010

 

PORTLAND, Ore.—The Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation invites you to learn about white-tail deer and black bear as part of its Spring Speaker Series with a presentation by state wildlife biologists on Wednesday, June 23 at 7 p.m. in Portland.

Columbian white-tail deer and black bear are both Oregon natives. The white-tail deer is designated as an endangered species across much of its historic range, but the southwest population is doing well. Steve Denney, who works for both ODFW and The Nature Conservancy, will discuss how capture-and-release techniques have helped to recover the species. Dave Immell, ODFW wildlife biologist, will share what he has learned during his 20 years of research on Oregon’s black bears and talk about how to live with bears as humans increasingly move into wildlife habitat.

Admission to the presentation is free, but registration is required. Register online at OWHF’s website www.owhf.org/springspeakerseries or call (503) 255-6059.

The hour-long talk will be held at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (Ecotrust Building) in Portland’s Pearl District, 721 NW Ninth Avenue, Portland.

The Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation champions projects that benefit fish, wildlife and habitat for access, education and enjoyment by all. Since its founding, OWHF has directed millions of dollars in funding to fish, wildlife and habitat projects throughout Oregon. For more information contact Tim Greseth, OWHF executive director, at (503) 255-6059.

OWHF and ODFW are working together to implement the Oregon Conservation Strategy, a blueprint and action plan for the long-term conservation of Oregon’s native fish and wildlife and their habitats.
