American Black Bear2

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.
