Presented by Kevin Hining of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, this workshop focuses on black bears in North Carolina. A majority of the workshop will be spent learning about the life history and current research on black bears, as well as activities that can be incorporated into educational programs. Information on how to coexist with black bears will also be provided. Participants will have the chance to tour the wildlife habitats at Grandfather Mountain with Grandfather Mountain staff and observe black bears up close! The workshop provides 6 hrs. Criteria II or III credit towards the N.C. Environmental Education Certification, or 0.6 CEU credit.

For more information, or to register, email judi@grandfather.com, or call (828) 733-2013.

This course is offered as part of the N.C.

The workshops will be at high elevation (> 4500 ft) and will include some walking, so please bring appropriate footwear and be prepared for inclement weather. Participants are asked to provide their own lunch, but there is a restaurant on site (Mildred’s Grill) in the Nature Museum.
