Maryland is home to a wide array of wildlife species, including the American black bear. For many, bears are a novel species with little known about them. For others, bears are a part of everyday life. Nearly every spring, juvenile black bears wander near Howard County. Join Howard County Conservancy and Maryland’s Black Bear Biologist, Jonathan Trudeau, as he shares information on the history of bears in Maryland, how the population is managed, and what to do if you encounter a bear.
