This workshop, led by N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission educator Kevin Hining, will focus 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 be provided. Participants will also 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.

The program is free of charge and will take place in the Nature Museum sun room and in the field. Participants are asked to bring or buy their own lunch. For more information, or to register, email amy@grandfather.com, or call (828) 733-4326.
