The population recovery of the Florida Black Bear is a success story. The bear population has increased to over 4,000 
statewide, up from around 300-500 in the 1960s and 1970s. However, more bears and more people on the landscape lead to  human-bear conflicts. What can people learn about bears and securing attractants to reduce these conflicts? The meeting  will begin at 7 p.m. at the Community Activities Center, 205 E. Ft. Dade Avenue, Brooksville. Information: Bev Hansen,
