Trip to the Bear Den

On March 9, Mr. McKay and the DNR invited us to tag along to check out a bear den.  We traveled to an area near Clam Lake where we used snowmobiles and snowshoes to reach the den.  DNR experts tranquilized the bear and pulled her from the den to complete some test and to fit her for a new collar.  The students had a great time and learned a lot about bear research.

Thank You to Mr. McKay and the DNR for letting us come along.
