Understanding the Misunderstood Black Bear
June 6, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
What is it about the black bear that humans find so fascinating? Is it their size? Their strength? Or could it be fear? Nature photographer and black bear advocate Bill Lea will answer these questions on Thursday, June 6, at 6:30pm in the Rogow Room at the Transylvania County Library. There are so many myths and so much misinformation about bears that few people really know the truth about black bears. Lea will share his amazing photographs while discussing black bears. Photographing black bears for more than two decades has provided Lea with extraordinary opportunities to learn about bears. For more than 20 years he has been presenting educational programs in an effort to dispel the many myths and un-truths about bears. He has appeared on Dateline NBC, National Public Radio, Midwest Outdoors, Animal Planet, local radio stations, news stations, and a variety of other programs. Light refreshments are provided by the Friends of the Library who support the Discover Natural Transylvania program series on the first Thursday of most months. There will not be a July Discover Natural Transylvania program, and the library will be closed for July 4. For additional information contact Marcy at 828-884-1820 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
