Overby tells bear tales at PEEC

-A A +A

Manny Overby will tell his bear story, 7 p.m. Aug. 20 at Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
“Everyone has a bear story or at least has heard a bear story,” Manny Overby said, who is an instructor at the Advanced Training Bureau of the NM Law Enforcement Academy. “Often times these stories are of a brief sighting in the forest or perhaps a camping trip encounter. More and more these stories consist of bears in our neighborhoods, our backyards or digging through our trash.”
Overby will share his stories of handling hundreds of bears in New Mexico and speak about what to do if encountered by a bear. “Come ready to learn as well as share some of your stories,” Overby said.
This presentation will include information about bear history, physiology, behavior and myths, so as to better understand bears and what to do if encountered by one. Overby will also talk about human behavior: what we should do and not do, whether living in or visiting bear country.
All ages are encouraged to attend the presentation, to make themselves more “bear aware.” The program is free and there is no advance registration required. To learn more about the program and PEEC, visit pajaritoeec.org, email programs@pajaritoeec.org or call 662-0460.
