Join FENCE on Thursday, September 29 at 10 a.m. for a presentation with N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s Tanya Poole on how to be BearWise and safely co-exist with bears. This presentation will discuss the natural history of black bears in Western North Carolina along with information on how to prevent conflicts, resolve problems, and how to keep bears wild. FENCE has experienced an increase in bear activity on their property and hopes to educate the community on how to keep themselves and wildlife safe. This event is free and open to the public.
