Sunday, September 21
1-4 pm

Endless Mountains Nature Center Lodge Directions

In NEPA the Black Bear population is increasing therefore the opportunities for human-bear interactions are increasing. Learn how to live with Black Bears by understanding what attracts them, their annual routines, and what to do when you encounter a bear. The program includes displays and a presentation by PA Game Commission WCO Vic Rosa; crafts and activities for children; and a guided walk looking for signs of bears and practice pretending to see a bear in along the trail with Naturalist Rebecca Lesko. This informative and fun event is open to all ages. Children will have the opportunity to paint bear silhouettes and need to wear old clothes for painting. The silhouettes will be placed along the trails for future events.

FEE: Nature Center Stewards-FREE; $3 per person for all others. Pay at the door. ("Stewards" are individuals or families who have made a donation to the Nature Center withing the past year.)
