Science and Nature Lecture: Black Bears in Pennsylvania
June 18, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Powdermill Nature Reserve
Did you know bears are not true hibernators? Join us for a look into the habits and life cycles of Pennsylvania’s only bear species—the black bear! Learn how wildlife experts safely trap bears to study and track these large mammals, and how bears survive the state’s seasonal cycles, including what they really do during harsh winters!
Join us as we explore seasonal natural history phenomena of Powdermill Nature Reserve! A lecture will be given in the Parker Room at 2 pm. Lectures are structured for adult audiences, and children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Events fill up fast! Registration is recommended to guarantee your spot and help us plan timing, seating, and/or trail routes. If there are spots available at the time of the program, non-registered individuals can join on a first-come, first-served basis. Program participants and visitors are expected to adhere to the public health guidance and Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh procedures in place at the time of their visit.
