Mother Nature Monday: Cubs in Trees

Did you know that bears like to raise their cubs high up in a tree? Think how much safer their babies are, secluded high above the ground until they are big enough to inch down the trunk of a huge tree. You can see an old bear den at the very top of a Tulip Poplar along the Joyce Kilmer memorial Forest Loop Trail very clearly in the winter. This is a wonderful opportunity to discuss with your children what a bear might want for a perfect den to raise a family.

Be sure to check back here most Mondays for another fun, educational fact about native flora and fauna to our Appalachian region.
