Adventures in Nature Lab: Black Bears in PA

September 10 @ 12:15 pm - 12:45 pm

Yogi Bear was a cartoon bear who used his great sense of smell to find picnic baskets full of food. While black bears don’t really look for picnic baskets, they do have a great sense of smell and as omnivores that will eat anything from berries and acorns to bird seed and garbage. Join Emily Carrollo, Black Bear Program Specialist from the Pennsylvania Game Commission, as we talk about these large Pennsylvania mammals and how to keep them from becoming regular visitors in your yard.
