Light Their Way Home
December 2, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
There’s no place like home for the holidays, and as the year draws to a close, your compassion and generosity will help our bear cubs return to their home. Our yearlings, Summitt and Dani are already back home where they belong. Otto, Rollo and Apollo, our “Cheery-O’s”, are strong and healthy and will soon return to the wild. Your kindness is the light that will guide them on their journey home.
To keep bears and humans safe, we must share the light of knowledge. Your generosity allows us to offer educational opportunities at our expanded Visitor and Education Center and through our Facebook page. We believe that enlightenment regarding bear behavior will lead to better coexistence and a reduction in the number of bears who come to us because of avoidable human-bear conflict.
Join us Saturday, December 2nd as we deck the ABR Visitor and Education Center halls and “Light Their Way Home”. We will be open from 10:00 a.m. thru 6:00 p.m. Enjoy various activities (including Santa!) and specials during the day. Be sure to leave your “Light Their Way Home” special message for the cubs. Ask for a special card that we will display at our Center as a visible sign of your compassion for our cubs. At 5:30 p.m. join us as we light Trillium Cove to begin the holiday season.
