From the press release:
Two experts on local wildlife will speak when the N.C. Center for Creative Retirement’s “Celebrating Life in the Mountains” series resumes with the presentation, “Wild Things,” at 7 p.m. on June 26. The “Celebrating Life in the Mountains” series is free and open to the public, and the presentations take place at UNC Asheville’s Reuter Center.
“Wild Things” will feature Dan Clere, education specialist at the Western North Carolina Nature Center, who will discuss the center’s mission and work, and Mike Carraway, mountain region supervisor at the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission. Carraway will discuss the increasing frequency of human-bear encounters, how to handle such an encounter, and the steps we can take to keep bears wild. A question-and-answer session will follow.
