North American Bears: Ecology, Behavior & Evolution

Jul 11, 2020


Bears are the iconic symbol of the American wilderness, and North America has three of the world’s eight species.  Historically, the park had two of the three – now only one. Learn the natural history of all three North American species – their evolution, behavior and habitat needs. Through illustrated classroom sessions and field trips, learn which areas of the park provide proper black bear habitat, what they eat, their population status and where to view and safely photograph North American bears.
