Observing Bears, Wolves and other Woodland Creatures in Katmai. Presented by Naturalist Simyra Taback. This presentation is part of the Art & Science of Bears project.
Simyra says “We are so used to living in a fast paced traveling society, trying to see it all and do it all that we have forgotten how to stop and find our place in the great scheme of things. Once in our lifetime, if we are very lucky, we may experience an adventure that changes our lives forever, Hallo Bay Wilderness was such a place for me. The wild and untouched splendor of this Alaska wilderness retreat reawakens one’s love and appreciation for all things in our lives which we have taken for granted for so long. The peaceful natural beauty of the surroundings, the endless change of the tides, the majestic bears who guard this paradise and the spirit of those of Hallo Bay Wilderness bring on an awe of life and a gentle calming effect to the soul.”
