Alliance is Sponsoring “Bear Whisperer” for Freedom Old Home Week

benFreedom—July 25, 2014—Ossipee Lake Alliance will present popular author and bear expert Ben Kilham at Freedom Town Hall on Monday, August 4. The event will begin at 7:00 p.m. and is part of Freedom Old Home Week.

Kilham has observed and documented the behaviors of black bears for more than 20 years, educating the public through books and presentations, and illustrating how bears have emotions similar to humans.

This free event will be a presentation suitable for the entire family, as he describes his adventures in the forest with these large, furry creatures.
