The black bear population in Connecticut has continued to increase since the 1980. It's important for residents and outdoor enthusiasts to learn real facts about black bears enabling them to stay safe, protect themselves and their property and make possible coexistence with bears. Felicia Ortner, a Connecticut Master Wildlife Conservationist (MWC) and a bear enthusiast, has been studying about bears for over 30 years. She has created a program she presents on a volunteer basis that will provide education and facts about bears and help dispel myths and common misunderstandings.
