National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) and The Mountaineers are proud to present Ghost Bears: Studying Grizzly Bears in Washington’s North Cascades Ecosystem. Admission is free, but you need to secure your spot by signing up early! 

This free event will be held Monday, November 3 from 7-8:30 pm (doors open and refreshments will be served beginning at 6:30pm) at the Bellevue Regional Library, Room 1, 1111 110th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98004

Go behind the scenes with wildlife ecologist Bill Gaines as he discusses his three-year search for elusive grizzly bears in the North Cascades. Along the way you’ll hear about the history of grizzlies in the Pacific Northwest, and the potential for grizzly bear recovery. Dr. Gaines will also describe the ingenious--and often smelly!--methods used to study these charismatic bruins deep in the backcountry, and for “hairy” tales of climbing, hiking, wading, and rappelling through this iconic landscape in the quest to document the presence of the Ghost Bears of the North Cascades.

Seats are limited! To save a spot for yourself and your friends or family, sign up on eventbrite.
