The North Bay Bear Collaborative invites you to an evening campfire talk with renowned researcher and tracker Meghan Walla-Murphy, on the history of bears in Sonoma County, rekindling our understanding of bear culture, and planning for living with bears. The presentation will be at the amphitheater, reachable via the Creekside Nature Trail from the main parking lot.

The North Bay Bear Collaborative (NBBC) is a working group of public agencies, non-profit conservation groups, landowners, and individuals committed to proactively address these potential challenges. Through research, community outreach and infrastructure improvements, the NBBC’s goal is to keep both our human and bear populations safe and resilient.
