Sept. 6 Program: Black Bears in NW Florida: by Jordan Green, wild life biologist, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. NW Florida is fortunate to have over a million acres available to wild life especially bears. The downside is that frequent interactions between black bears often end badly for the bears. Green will address the ecology and distribution of black bears and offer insight on more effectively managing these interactions.
The program will be held in room 308/309 of the Student Services Building 400 at the Northwest Florida State College Niceville campus. Socializing begins at 6:30 PM and the program at 7:00 PM. Admission is free and open to the public. Contact Dave Clausen at (907) 321 3701 for more information.
