Learning the difference is tricky for youngsters. Black bears come in many color, this one is a cinnamon black bear.

2:30pm Presentation to secondary students (6th to 12th)

3:05pm Presentation to elementary students (k-5th)

We like to change our presentation every year and this being our third year we added in some science with a clip on what actually happens when bears hibernate for the older students as well as a little humor from Bear Smart with How to Make a Bear Roar (hint: bears don't roar) and perfect clip to sum it all up from Steve Searles of Mammoth Lakes.

 

For the younger students we gave out stickers while we waited for all the classes to arrive. A simple presentation with vivid bear photographs and simple & practical information on bears. We also showed How to Make a Bear Roar from Bear Smart, and the Steve Searles clip.
