Attend to learn what you need to do for your safety and wildlife. Well known expert on wildlife and CT State Director of the Humane Society of the United States Annie Hornish, will share her experience and knowledge on the topic of bears and welcomes questions on other wildlife. Ms. Hornish will cover how to co-exist with bears and why hunting of bears will not make people safer. She will offer perspectives for humane management when conflicts with wildlife arise.
