Wild About Bears!

Wild About Bears!  Did you know that in Alabama, the yearly cycle for black bears starts in February? This is the time when the female bears, known as sows, give birth to their adorable cubs snug inside their cozy dens. Black bears are native to Alabama and their population is on the rise. Historically found in the southwest area of the state, bears have also been migrating into northeast Alabama from northwest Georgia over recent years. Following in their wake are myths, tall tales, and misconceptions. Join Beth Sewell from JSU Field School to delve deeper into the world of bears, discover if they hibernate or not, and what to do to live with bears in your community. DeSoto State Park-Fort Payne, Alabama. Benefield Interpretive Nature Center next to the Country Store. Free & open to everyone. Contact Brittney.Hughes@dcnr.alabama.gov or rmtaylor@jsu.edu for more details.
