Lake City Community School Visit
April 2018

Our fifth annual school visit is being planned for sometime in April. We enjoy presenting to the students new and interesting presentations each year! Parents are always welcome to attend the presentations.
Wildlife Cams
Ongoing

Three trail cams have been placed in the forests high above Lake City. We'll be posting the best of the videos and photos of all the wildlife, not just bears!

Oscar the Bear 

In 2013 Oscar ran the 10k and raised $422. In 2014 Oscar walked the 5k, and came in first place in the male mammal category. He also raised $500 in donations!
Thank you once again to Carol Robinson for her wonderful race day photos. More photos and finish time are here:
Bear Day in the Armory
July 1, 2018

 

Join us for a day filled with fun, education, and yes, black bears! Not live ones of course, because bears belong in the forests.
