Presentations

 Waltzing with Bears
Live - Fri 4:00pm-5:00pm 

Andrew and Ethan take pride in having a spotless record not feeding wilderness bears. Chipmunks and mice are a different story. They hope that after their presentation you can share their success and gain valuable tips on keeping your food safe in bear country. They'll show various bear barrels, food hanging systems, bear deterrents, and other techniques to keep your food safe while camping.

Their guest, Matt Gross, a DNR wildlife biologist and former nuisance bear specialist, will talk about what different bear behaviors mean during an encounter and what you should do if you have an unwanted bear encounter.
