Nature and You Lecture: Grizzly Bears, the History and Future of Grizzlies in the Pacific Northwest and California

The Grizzly Bears, or North American Brown Bears, have been have been part of the North American Ecosystem since the Ice Age.  Their relationships with humans, particularly Europeans, however, has been problematic.  The California Grizzly sub-species made it on to the state flag, but was hunted to extinction.  What is the history of the Grizzly Bear?  Should they be reintroduced into some of their former ranges in the North Cascades, or even California?

Please join the Ecologist, Naturalist, and Grizzly Bear expert, Rick Sitts for a lecture on Grizzly Bears.  Learn about  their history, ecology, and survival in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem as well as issues surrounding their reintroduction into former ranges.

This lecture will be held at the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library in Davis
