WEST GLACIER, MONT. – Have you ever wondered what bears do when we can’t see them? If so, plan to join Jeff Stetz, a US Geological Survey wildlife biologist stationed at Glacier National Park, for a “Brown Bag” presentation entitled What do Bears Really Do in the Woods? on Tuesday, March 31st from 12 - 12:30 pm at the West Glacier Community Building. Stetz is the assistant project leader for the Northern Divide Grizzly Bear DNA Project.

Stetz will present an update on both the visual and audio documentation of bear behavior, distribution, and response to sampling stations located in the park with remotely triggered cameras.
