UT Arboretum Society Lecture Series - The American Black Bear: A Visual Walk into Their Wild Lives

The Forest Resources Research & Education Center
Oak Ridge
Thursday, November 14, 2019
7 - 8 pm

Being so close to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it seems we have a fascination with bears. Come to the UT Arboretum Auditorium on Thursday, November 14, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for an educational presentation about the American black bear by renowned photographer Chris Norcott.

Norcott has spent more than a decade observing and studying black bears in the wilds of the Great Smoky Mountains. He spends much of each year hiking off trail in the backcountry observing the wild and secretive lives of black bears. He photographs the bears’ rarely seen habitat and documents the behaviors of these beautiful animals.

This very popular program is free but seating is limited, so people must rsvp in advance to “The American Black Bear.” Go to http://utarboretumsociety.org/ (click here) or call 865-483-7277.
