“It’s going to take all of us working together to keep bears wild. We can do it and one of the first ways is by becoming ‘Bear Aware’ at this fun and FREE event!”-Jenny Beeler, Resource Management Specialist Cumberland Gap National Historical Park (NHP).

To help people really appreciate, understand and know what to do when it comes to bears, the park has embarked on this aggressive educational campaign ‘BACK THE B.E.A.R.S.' – Be Educated and Responsible Stewards.

This event is a “one-stop bear fact shopping” where visitors will have opportunities to connect with black bear experts from the National Park Service and state wildlife agencies and learn how we can all live together, avoid bear-people interactions and enjoy this symbol of the Southern Appalachian forest.
