Out on a Limb- Ben Kilham speaks on Bears

Mon. April 28, 7pm
Ben Kilham will be here to talk about his ground-breaking work observing bears in the wild, as well as raising orphaned cubs. Kilham, who is severely dyslexic, has had to circumvent convention and create his own methods for understanding the world around him–which is why his wildlife work isn’t just about bears. Kilham’s findings and the roadblocks he’s encountered and overcome along the way say something about his own species as well. This is going to be one of our most exciting programs this year- don't miss it! Read about his book Out on a Limb: What black bears taught me about intelligence and intuition, here.
