Learn about human-bear conflict and black bear management on July 28 in Florence

July 18, 2012

PORTLAND, Ore. — Join Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Biologist Doug Cottam on Saturday, July 28 from 11 a.m.-2:30 pm. for an educational tour of areas where human-bear conflicts have occurred in and around Florence, Ore.

“This is a great opportunity to learn firsthand about black bears and the challenge of managing conflict as we expand into their habitat,” said Tim Greseth, Executive Director for Oregon Wildlife.

The tour will cost $6.50 and requires registration online at www.owhf.org/firsthandoregon. The Foundation charges the fee to help offset the costs of offering field-based experiences. Participants should expect to encounter a variety of field conditions and need to bring their own transportation to travel from site to site. Binoculars are highly recommended.

This program is part of an Oregon Wildlife (Heritage Foundation) and ODFW joint venture called Firsthand Oregon. For more information about the program, please contact Tim Greseth of Oregon Wildlife at tim@owhf.org or (503) 255-6059.
