The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area announces a 45-minute, ranger-led interpretive program on Saturday, February 28, about Big South Fork's largest mammal, the American black bear (Ursus americanus). Please come and enjoy an afternoon with National Park Service Ranger Mary Grimm and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency Biologist Casey Mullen at Crossville-Cumberland County Visitor Center, Gateway to the Big South Fork, to learn more about bear-related topics, especially the reintroduction of bears on the plateau and living with bears.  While bear hunting is prohibited at Big South Fork NRRA, Casey Mullen will discuss the new regulations for bear hunting season for other areas within the state of Tennessee. This fact-filled program begins promptly at 2:00 p.m. (CT) on February 28, at the Crossville-Cumberland County Visitor Center. This program is free of charge and wheelchair accessible. Everyone is welcome.

For directions or additional information, please call the Gateway to the Big South Fork Visitor Center in Crossville at (931) 787-1755 or Bandy Creek Visitor Center at (423) 286-7275.
