  Bear In Mind:
The Story of the California Grizzly


Now open through May 11, 2014

Scientists think that about 10,000 grizzlies once lived in California. Whether out of fear, thrill, or simple competition for space on the land, California settlers killed grizzly bears until the 1920s when the species became extinct. But the grizzly bear lives on in our imaginations and in stories and advertisements symbolizing things desired and things lost. Bear in mind, what you do affects wildlife. So, what are you going to do to help?
