Bears Oh My!


All You Ever Wanted To Know About Bears In Montana
at the Salmon Lake Amphitheatre this Friday


Seeley Swan Pathfinder
June 18, 1998

 

Please join us for the FIRST FIRESIDE CHAT of the summer. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks puts on a series of educational programs for the public that runs through the summer at various Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks sites.

Jamie Jonkel, a Wildlife Technician for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, is giving a presentation on grizzly and black bears at the amphitheatre in the woods at Salmon Lake State Park on Friday, June 19 at 8:30 p.m. His presentation will include how to distinguish between a grizzly and black bear, the needs and characteristics of both bears, the issues surrounding the reintroduction of grizzly bears in portions of west-central Montana and of course bear safety.

This is a great opportunity to ask questions you may have about these curious and fascinating creatures. This excellent educational program will help clear up any myths or misconceptions about the marvelous species - the BEAR. The presentation will include slides, hides, tracks and the inviting atmosphere of the campfire (and to top it off, complimentary coffee, tea and cocoa).

For more information about this or future programs, please call Cori Pepelnjak at Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Missoula at 406-542-5533.
