Location: Underhill Town Hall
Come celebrate a busy year of land conservation at our Annual Meeting! Refreshments start at 6:30 p.m. with a short business meeting at 7 p.m. We are delighted to have Jaclyn Comeau, a wildlife biologist and the Black Bear Project Leader for the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, as our guest speaker. Her topic will be about living with black bears.
For over nine years, Jaclyn has led black bear research and education in Vermont. As a Black Bear Project Leader, she works to coordinate and conduct research evaluating the effects of industrial wind development within large bear-scarred beech concentrations on black bears. She also captures black bears to fit them with satellite GPS collars. She studies black bear activity and habitat use via telemetry and remote camera data. She evaluates roads as potential landscape barriers in cooperation with Staying Connected Initiative. And finally, Jaclyn assists Vermont residents with resolving human-bear conflicts. Bring your questions and learn more about our important black bear neighbors.
