Elaine Dunn of New Jersey Bear Education and Resource (BEAR) Group will present “How to Become a Bear-Smart Community” at the Berkeley Heights Public Library on Saturday, June 9 from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. Dunn will speak about the non-aggressive nature of black bears, what to do when you see a bear, and what you can do to keep bears from frequenting your neighborhood. Keeping garbage in bear-resistant containers and bringing in your bird feeders are among the best ways to discourage bears from becoming a nuisance. The Bear Education and Resource Group’s mission is to educate residents about black bears, reduce unwarranted fears, promote tolerance of our bear neighbors and foster peaceful coexistence between people and bears. Free, call the Library at (908) 464-9333 to register. The Berkeley Heights Public Library is located at 290 Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.
