For thousands of years and all over the United States, people have lived alongside bears, learning from the bears and learning how to live with them. Join us for an evening to explore black bears in Sonoma County and California, the role they play in our healthy ecosystem, human-bear relationships, and how you can help keep the bears of Sonoma County from becoming nuisance bears. Knowing how to make your home and property secure from bears not only keeps us safe, but the bears too! All ages welcome. Hot tea and light snacks provided.
