Annual Meeting   May 5   2:30pm
Living with Bears: Understanding Behavior to Reduce Conflict and Negative Interactions

Somers Town House/Elephant Hotel

After our short business meeting, we are excited to host Budd Veverka who will present a topic certain to be of  interest to everyone:  "Living with Bears: Understanding Behavior to Reduce Conflict and Negative Interactions".


We all hear about black bears and see photos of them online. But if we encounter one when we’re hiking with the kids or birding alone… uh, what exactly should we do?  


Now is your chance to learn from an expert and have  your questions answered.​


Budd Veverka is a Regional Wildlife Biologist and Director of Land Management at Mianus River Gorge.  His work is fascinating, and you won’t want to miss what he has to say about safety, bear habits and best practices.  

Budd is also involved with white-tailed deer management and the control of invasive species.​

2024 is bringing
new directions for Somers Land Trust!

In 2023, Somers Land Trust volunteers are turning their focus to developing trails and infrastructure on both parcels of Rhinoceros Creek Reservation, as responsibility for maintenance of Angle Fly Preserve transitions to the Town of Somers. And our local scout troops are making exciting contributions at RCR as well.

Perhaps you love the southwest parcel - relaxing in the pavilion with its native plant garden and new benches, hiking up the ridge on the green trail. Have you found the beaver dam bridge and the forest loop on the northeast parcel?  

We invite you to visit Rhinoceros Creek this year to see the new additions. And, as always, we are asking for your help to ensure trails and green space will be here for your family and our community for the long term.

Please click to volunteer your time or dollars - both are essential and greatly appreciated.
