Eco Kids Event Feb. 20: All About the American Black Bear!

SWC is excited to offer a very special event in our Eco Kids series for kids of all ages about the American black bear. This will be an interactive show, where the kids will be able to pass graphic and information cards as we share fascinating information about black bears.  There will also be bear claws to pass around, a fun game for all to play to learn about the bear’s diet, a bear craft activity, a black bear activity sheet to take home, and a quick talk about bear safety when hiking out in their territory!

The event will be held at the picnic shelter at Bass Lake Park in Holly Springs, Sunday, Feb. 20, 1:00-2:30 PM. Note that the picnic shelter is a different entrance further up the hill than the main park entrance. This is an outdoor event, so please dress appropriately. You must pre-register to attend.

Cassia Rivera leads this event and is a professional wildlife photographer and advocate. She has frequented North Carolina’s Pocosin Lakes, Alligator River, and The Great Dismal Swamp, as well as refuges in four other states, for ongoing bear observations over the last five years. Her photography is being used in the BearWise program and she educates the public on bears and best practices to coexist with them!
