Why can we feed the birds but not the bears?

Robert Petty
Matt Ludin

As bears make their appearances in communities around Montana we answer this question and others like, “What are bears doing in town?” “How can bears sleep all winter without eating?” “What do you mean grizzly bears ate bison?” And “How to tell a black bear from a grizzly bear without asking them?”

Robert Petty, conservationist, naturalist, and educator will join us to answer these questions and more, “bearly” containing our enthusiasm as we celebrate bears on the Pea Green Boat, Wednesday, November 3rd at 4 p.m.

Sam Manno is a rotating host and producer of the Children's Corner and the Pea Green Boat.
