Name: National Wildlife Day - Grizzly Bear Education Talk - DE Seashore State Park
Date: September 4, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
 A visit to the wild coastline of Delaware Seashore State Park is the highlight of the summer for many Delaware residents and visitors.  Wildlife-viewing is abundant in the park during the summer, from viewing osprey on their nesting platforms to spotting bottlenose dolphins swimming up and down the coast.  One creature that doesn’t come to mind when spotting wildlife in the park is bears! While Delaware Seashore State Park is certainly not the habitat for bears of any species, one of the park’s volunteers specializes in bear education, and more specifically, grizzly bears.

Park staff will be hosting Bill Cook, a volunteer educator for Delaware Seashore, on Tuesday, September 4 at 7 p.m., which is National Wildlife Day. Cook spends most of his volunteer hours leading evening amphitheater programs in the campground during the summer, and educating park visitors about ghost crabs during the weekly “Wild Crab Chase” programs.  After each summer, he returns to his hometown of Helena, Montana where he spends the better part of the year.  In Montana, he teaches bear programs for Montana Wildlife, Fish, and Parks, as well as the U.S. Forest Service.  Before he heads back west at the end of the summer season, he will be presenting his bear education program at the Indian River Life-Saving Station.

This program is just one of the many educational programs offered by Delaware Seashore State Park.  For a full calendar of programs and events, please visit destateparks.com/Beaches/DelawareSeashore or facebook.com/delawareseashorestatepark/events/ .  For more information please call the Indian River Life-Saving Station at (302) 227-6991.
