Wild things! - This program on June 26 at 7 will focus on wildlife in our region, a captivating reason to Celebrate Life in the Mountains. The Western NC Nature Center houses animals indigenous to western NC. Dan Clere, Education Specialist, will showcase the mission of the Nature Center and some of the animals who are resident there in a talk he calls Fur, Feathers, and Scales. An animal from the center will likely accompany Dan.
Mike Carraway, Mountain Regional Supervisor of the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, will educate us about living with bears in Asheville. Mike will discuss the increasing frequency of human-bear encounters in and around Asheville, what steps we can take to keep bears wild, and what we should (and should not) do if we find ourselves face to face with a bear.
A Q & A session will follow.
