Black Bear Research in Sagehen Basin
Sagehen Creek Field Station is a research & education facility of the University of California at Berkeley. Founded in 1951 for the original purpose of fisheries & wildlife studies, the facility has expanded to include the entire 9,000 acre Sierra-Nevada watershed. Within this watershed lives the wily California Black Bear.
Folks whose only contact with these animals is raided garbage cans may be surprised to learn that bears are incredibly clever & difficult to trap. Come along as California Dept. of Fish & Game researcher Jennapher Miller tries to trap & collar the Sagehen bears in order to begin behavioral studies. Her goal is to learn how these animals use the landscape, with an eye to altering land management strategies to allow humans & bears to co-exist.
