Presentation to focus on the bear essentials

May 30, 2013 by  

The ‘Bears on the Move’ event is part of the Nature at Noon series provided by Naturetracker and is a great way to learn more about bears in the wild and their estimated populations. The organizers suggest that guests bring a bagged lunch and snacks with them.

The presentation, which is no doubt being promoted through poster and banner printing at the moment, will feature a wildlife biologist from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Mark Vieira, who has been studying the bears in their natural habitat and will share his findings with those who attend.

There will be information about collected DNA samples taken from the bear’s hair using scent-baited collected hair snags. This study was conducted to assist scientists and people can receive updated information by signing up to the Naturetracker website. The presentation is aimed at adults and has a maximum seating capacity of 80 people, but registration is not necessary, although guests will receive a reminder from the website. The event has been organized by the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Department and guests should enter through the north entrance to the building.

This is a free event and all are invited. The Bears on the Move presentation will be happening on Wednesday, June 5 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at the Community Room located at 215 N Mason Street in Fort Collins, Colorado.
