Black Bear Day

On May 16 Squam Lakes Natural Science Center hosted a special day to teach about the fascinating and resourceful native New Hampshire Black Bear. All ages were admitted to the trails for a special reduced fee of $8 (admission, as always, was free for members and children ages 2 and under). New Hampshire Fish & Game Biologist Andrew Timmons presented a talk about Black Bear ecology at 10:30 a.m. Visitors viewed the Science Center’s two resident Black Bears and volunteer docents were on hand to answer Bear trivia questions. There were crafts and story time for children.
