The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area announces a 45-minute, ranger-led interpretive program about Big South Fork's largest mammal: American Black Bear. Please come and enjoy an evening outdoors with Ranger Debby Zimmerman at the campfire circle to learn more about a myriad of bear-related topics such as historical relationships with human cultures, black bear biology, how to stay safe in bear country, and your role in keeping bear populations wild. This fun, fact-filled evening activity begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. (EDT) on July 20 at the Blue Heron Campground.
This campfire circle program is free of charge and wheelchair accessible. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing. Everyone is welcome.

Did You Know?
The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area protects only 14% of its watershed. Unfortunately it is the lower end of the watershed, so that everything which happens outside the park, impacts the parks water quality.
