Come enjoy a variety of displays by Edmonds Community College students and regional conservation groups working on grizzly bear recovery in the North Cascades, as well as other environmental projects at Edmonds Community College on April 17th beginning at 5 pm with displays followed at 7 PM by the free entertaining and educational lecture by Dr. Bill Gaines on the quest to find members of the very -imperiled North Cascades Grizzly Bear population. Reservations and free tickets can be obtained through the Black Box Theater Events page https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?show=52993 Western Wildlife Outreach (WWO) will be on hand with their NW Bear Education Trailer displaying a mounted grizzly bear and a mounted black bear as well as free posters and brochures about bears and bear safety.
Early this year, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service begin a public review and scientific process to examine the best way to restore grizzly bears to their former habitats in the North Cascades. There will be staff on hand from Conservation Northwest and the National Parks Conservation Association as well as WWO to answer your questions about bears, bear safety and that public review process. Members of the Snohomish Tribal dancers will be there to honor the grizzly bear, important to their culture. The event is also sponsored by the Native American Student Association and the Associated Students of Edmonds Community College.
