***We're going to postpone this fundraiser to a future date.
Thanks for being friends & supporters of Bear Hollow & stay tuned for the reschedule!
Love Bear Hollow Zoo? We do too!
And you can show just how much you love our local zoo by joining us for this class to paint an adorable portrait of Bear Hollow's beloved American Black Bear, Athena.
This painting is based on an actual photograph of her in 2010 as a cub at Bear Hollow Zoo taken by local photographer, Wade Sheldon. Not only will you have a great time working on your portrait, but you will have a chance to meet a number of long-time zoo volunteers who are also board members of Friends of Bear Hollow, Inc., a newly created organization dedicated to supporting Bear Hollow Zoo through fundraising and outreach. Zoo volunteers will be there with tasty snacks, animal biofacts for you to touch and explore, and a brief presentation on the zoo and its residents, including Athena. They will also be happy to answer all of your questions about the zoo while you paint the afternoon away. Best of all, $15 of every class registration fee goes directly back to supporting the animals of Bear Hollow Zoo through the Friends of Bear Hollow. You can learn more about the Friends of Bear Hollow at www.friendsofbearhollow.org
And if we can manage it, we may have a resident Bear Hollow Zoo at the event!
