Community Conversations: Living with Bears

We'll meet at the New Castle Community Center at 6 pm on the following Wednesdays to discuss how we can live alongside bears.

Wednesday, March 1: Education
Join us for a conversation about what makes bears tick, what they are interested in, and how bears go about their lives. Did you know black bears like toothpaste?

Wednesday, March 22: Prevention
Learn what we can do to deter bears from coming too close as well as how to keep ourselves, our pets, and the bears safe.

Wednesday, April 19: Encounters
Join us for a conversation about what to do when you meet a bear!  Hint: They don’t want to shake your hand!


If you have any questions you would like addressed at these meetings please send them to Caitlin Carey at We recommend you submit questions a week in advance to ensure they get answered.
