Rancocas welcomes Michelle Smith, Information and Education Coordinator for NJDEP’s Division of Fish and Wildlife as she presents "Know the Bear Facts." As black bears have now been confirmed in all 21 of New Jersey's counties, residents are encouraged to become better educated about this important component of the state's natural heritage. The program offers information about living with black bears, the natural history and biology of bears in the Garden State, and the results of past and current black bear research. It also includes practical information on coexisting with black bears, such as steps one should follow in order to ensure that bears do not become a nuisance animal in the neighborhood. Preregister by calling RNC at 609-261-2495. There is no charge for this program, but donations are encouraged.
