Bear Aware Program This Saturday

If you are interested in learning about bears you can this Saturday. Bennet Springs is hosting a bear-aware program at 10 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. The one-hour program will be centered around black bears and is a public event for the whole family. Division Information Officer of the Missouri State Parks Tisha Holden says kids will be able to touch bear objects.

Holden says kids will watch a video and will learn safety tips about bears.
