Spring Bear Wake-Up Social

The Spring Bear Wake-Up Social is a fun and educational community event to raise awareness as black bears emerge from winter dens to begin a bear season anew – with an emphasis on preventing human-bear conflict and keeping bears wild! See photos from past Spring Bear Wake-Up Socials here.
