Grizzly Bear
April 26, 2018 - Seattle, Washington
Did you know that Washington state is home to more than 25,000 black bears and two small populations of grizzlies? Bears are highly active this time of year, waking from hibernation and looking for food. Spring is a great time to explore the natural beauty of our state – and it’s also prime time to practice your bear awareness skills!

We’ll be working along the Rio Cebolla in the Jemez Mountains to install beaver dam analogs, structures that imitate the beneficial effects that natural beaver dams have on ecosystems. The dams will help maintain wetlands habitat and provide a home for species like the New Mexico meadow jumping mouse which lives in mountainous river-side areas.
