Join the Killingworth Land Conservation Trust for its Fall Meeting, where Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection Biologist Kyle Testerman will present a captivating talk and slideshow on the “Natural History and Management of Connecticut’s Black Bears.”
From the press release:
Killingworth, a town encompassing over 35 square miles (23,000 acres) of mostly forested land, is nestled within a vast area of over 30,000 acres of permanently protected open space, stretching from Regional Water Authority land in North Branford to the Connecticut River in Chester and Deep River. This expansive landscape provides ample room for plants and animals, including various larger mammals like fisher, bobcat, and the more recent addition of black bears. The presence of these bears not only adds to the beauty of the area but also serves as an indication of a thriving forested ecosystem.
During the event, Kyle Testerman from CT DEEP will delve into bear biology, shed light on the current population numbers of black bears in Connecticut, and provide valuable insights on what to know and what to do if bears are spotted in your vicinity. The Killingworth Land Conservation Trust warmly welcomes anyone with a curiosity about our local environment to join us for an evening filled with fun and fascinating discussions.
It’s happening Thursday, November 16 at 7pm in the KES All-Purpose Room (Killingworth Elementary School).
