Project WILD, a bear educator workshop, will be held June 20 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Southwest Region Office.

The workshop will focus on black bears, including lessons on their biology, physiology, habits, habitat requirements and the game commission’s management strategies.

Instructors will include Mark Ternent, the state’s black bear biologist and other staff members who will assist with the lessons and Project WILD activities.

Every attempt will be made to have a live bear available to show what happens when one is caught; specifically, the data that is collected and how it is tagged.

The program will be held at Act 48: 7ᄑ hours. There is no fee for this course, but registration is required by Wednesday, and the event capacity is 24 participants.

Registration will be accepted by contacting Patrick L. Snickles, state game warden supervisor, southwest region, at psnickles@pa.gov or at (724) 238-9523. You must include your name, phone number, email address and PID number.

The office is located at 4820 Route 711, Bolivar.
