Deerfield Wind Bear Study public meeting on Monday

WOODFORD – A public meeting on the Deerfield Wind Black Bear Study will be held on Monday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m. at Woodford Town Hall, 1391 Route 9.

Surrounding the Deerfield Wind Project are some of the largest concentrations of bear scarred beech trees left in Vermont.

The Deerfield Wind Black Bear Study is designed to better understand impacts that large-scale wind development has on bear use of these important feeding sites. The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has been tracking radio collared bears in the Woodford area for a number of years.

Information gathered is aiding in an understanding of the impacts of the wind project as well as how bears move across the landscape and interact with other types of human development.

Jaclyn Comeau, the wildlife biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department who oversees the Deerfield Wind Black Bear Study, will discuss the study and preliminary findings. There will be a question and answer period following the presentation.

The meeting is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Jim Sullivan at the Bennington County Regional Commission: 802-442-0713 x5 or jsullivan@bcrcvt.org
