Public Lecture: A Birder’s Guide to Dealing with Bears with Budd Veverka
Our Monthly Lecture Series is Back!
Bears have been in the news quite a bit this summer. Find out what’s going on in this area at this month’s presentation.
You don’t have to be a birder to come learn about living and dealing with bears in your neighborhood. We’ll give you the scoop at our Monthly Lecture: A Birder’s Guide to Dealing with Bears presented by Budd Veverka. Budd is the Director of Land Management at Mianus River Gorge. Previously, Budd spent over 10 years working as a wildlife biologist in several states across the South and Midwest; most recently in Indiana where his research focused on farmland wildlife, and he authored the National Wildlife Pheasant Conservation Plan. Today, Budd focuses his work on invasive species management, northeastern forest restoration, suburban black bear activity, white-tailed deer management, and student mentorship. He is the organizational representative to the Lower Hudson Partnership for Invasive Species Management and the New York State Hemlock Initiative and is an active member of The Wildlife Society.
