Natural history of grizzly bears

Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 6:00pm

The Carbon County Historical Society & Museum presents award-winning Red Lodge authors/photographers Jack Ballard and Lisa Densmore July 24 at 7 p.m. They will will present a program on the natural history of grizzly bears. Based on the research for Ballard’s book, Grizzly Bears: A Falcon Field Guide, the program will dispel myths about this most revered and feared of large mammals, explaining their life cycle, where they live, what they eat, how they communicate and what you really need to know if you travel in the backcountry here and elsewhere. Then, Densmore will take everyone on a virtual safari to photograph grizzly bears that she took last fall in British Columbia. The museum is located at 224 N Broadway in Red Lodge. There is a $2 charge for nonmembers. For more information please call the museum at 406-446-3667.
