Paul Colburn, a Connecticut Master Wildlife Conservationist and avid outdoorsman, will focus on the natural history of black bears and current research efforts. He will provide an overview of their habitat, diet, behavior, and reproduction and use black bear artifacts to help dispel myths and common misunderstandings.
