Join us at Cross’ Mills Public Library for a fun hour of learning about black bears with Mary Grande from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management. In recent years, black bear sightings have increased significantly in Rhode Island. Participants will learn about black bear natural history, how the DEM works with bears living in RI, and how to best coexist with them. Everyone will also have the opportunity to observe and touch some natural artifacts. This program is free and open to families with children of all ages.
