CONCORD, N.H. – Come learn about New Hampshire's black bears at a free talk called "Black Bear Happenings in New Hampshire" on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. 03301. No pre-registration is required. The session starts at 7 p.m.
At the talk, presenter Mike Morrison will explore the natural history of our native black bears, current research being done on black bears in New Hampshire, and how this powerful species is managed in the Granite State. You'll learn some intriguing facts about bears, including how the quality of habitat affects bear productivity and how food provided by humans can affect that natural balance. You'll also hear about the federal Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, now in its 75th year, which makes wildlife management work possible.

He holds a Masters in Environmental Studies and Masters in Science Teaching from Antioch New England, taught high school ecology and biology for 34 years, managed Pillsbury State Park for ten years, and is the Education Director of the N.H.
