July 23, 2015 Michigan Bears: Super Villain or not!

July 23, 2015 Michigan Bears: Super Villain or not!
...most winter dens are actually above the ground!

Thursday, July 23, 2015 Family Program-"Michigan Bears:  Super Villain or not!"

 

Katie Keen, from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, joined us at the Reed City Depot building for a rousing program about our Michigan black bear neighbors!

 

Katie presented some of the lesser known facts about Michigan black bears, brought colorful and entertaining photos as part of her Powerpoint presentation and even some bear "props" to interact with.  All who attended learned things they didn't know about Michigan black bears (did you know most winter dens are actually above the ground!?), while the children especially seemed to enjoy the program and sharing their own stories.  Katie taught us about bear biology and what to do if you encounter a bear, and many other bear facts as well!

 

Special thanks to Katie Keen and the Michigan Department of Resources!
