On Tuesday, Jan. 10, the Green Mountain Audubon Society is sponsoring a  
program entitled "Bear Necessities" featuring Tom Decker, Bear Biologist for the  
Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. Tom will speak about the natural history 
 of the black bear in Vermont and how people and bears can live together to  
sustain this important wildlife population. The program will take place at 7 
PM  at the Carpenter-Carse Public Library in Hinesburg. The program is free and 
all  are welcome to attend. If you have questions or would like more 
information  about this program, please call Caryn Gronvold at 862-7772.
