Bear With Us – Bear Stories of the Santa Cruz Mountains

Exhibition Dates: February 15 – October 18, 2015
Opening Reception: February 15, 2015 2-4pm

In the late 1700s, the San Francisco peninsula was a wilderness, and home to large numbers of grizzlies. The abundance of food was shared between the hierarchy of wildlife and the native peoples; there was plenty for all. In just a few decades, this would change.

Confrontations between man and bear often resulted in death or serious injury. By the late-1800s there were few grizzlies left here and by 1900, grizzlies, once prolific, had been hunted to extinction.

This exhibition tells the stories of bear encounters, both grizzlies and black bears, in the Santa Cruz area from the late 1700s to the present day and reminds us that often our intolerance can lead to an unrecoverable and regrettable loss.

The exhibition includes hands-on activities for young visitors and interactive elements to engage visitors of all ages.
