Grizzlies in the Park


Saturday, October 13th 9am to noon

Tour starts at 9am 

Discover how the California grizzly bear lived and how it went extinct at this family-friendly event in Esparto's Capay Open Space Park. Rick Sitts, a California naturalist, will take you on a walking tour of the California grizzlies habitat while telling its story and history in Yolo County. Using life-sized models of the grizzly bear and its cousin, the black bear, you can pretend to be a field scientist and identify and make notes of the differences between the two. While on the tour, learn about tools that drove grizzlies extinct here in California, and tools helping people in the northern Rockies of the US safely coexist with expanding populations of wild grizzly bears. A great way for kids of all ages to spend a nice fall morning!
