The Bears of Katmai – NH Audubon Society
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Katmai National Park is located on the Alaska Peninsula in southwest Alaska. Katmai is famous for its volcanoes, salmon and the world’s largest protected population of brown bears, estimated at 2,200 individuals. Most visitors come to Katmai to see and photograph the large numbers of brown bears that congregate at Brook’s Falls to feed on the abundant spawning salmon. This program will focus on the brown bears of Katmai and why it is one of the best places in the world to see brown bears. We will also cover the other wildlife, plants and the spectacular geology of the Valley of the 10,000 Smokes, including ash deposits and Jurassic era fossils along the Lethe River.
David Govatski works as an expedition ship naturalist in Alaska and has visited and studied brown bears at Katmai, Lake Clark, Glacier Bay and Denali National Parks and elsewhere.
This free Lakes Region Chapter presentation is open to the public and begins at 7 pm at the Loon Center in Moultonborough, NH.
