The lecture will be presented by Wildlife Biologist Cindy Lawrence from 7 to 8 p.m. at Periodic Brewing 115 E. 7th St, upstairs.
Topics to be covered will include what makes black bears susceptible to ever-emboldening interactions with people, and the role people play in incidents that can lead to situations that are often fatal to the bear and hazardous to humans.
