The Black Bear

February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Naturalist and author Ben Kilham will share his knowledge of black bears gained by observing bears in the wild and raising orphan bear cubs on his property in Lyme, NH. Ben attended the University of New Hampshire and earned a degree in wildlife management. In the spring of 1992, Ben found himself parenting a pair of orphaned, emaciated, four-pound bear cubs. The experience eventually led him to parenting over forty cubs, releasing them back in the wild, and researching and observing the whole life cycle of the black bear. By thinking more from the bear’s perspective, Ben has designed workshops that provide wildlife management with the tools to disarm threatening bear behavior without destroying the bear.

The free presentation begins at 7pm at The Rocks and is part of the Bretzfelder Park Family Educational Series.
