Program Description:

The Bear Basics Program for K-12 schools is a free, interactive presentation that has educated thousands of Montana students on the natural history, behavior, and ecology of large North American predators. The focus is primarily on black, grizzly, and polar bears, but wolves and mountain lions are included, as learning to live with top-level predators is essential in Montana. Bear biologists review our factual curricula and educational packets that we provide to teachers.
