Girl Scout Outing at Clark's Bears

Girl Scouts

June 6 or June 15, 2020

Clark's Bears in Lincoln, NH is proud to host our annual Girl Scout Outing. Join Girl Scouts of all ages for a day of discovery and fun! In addition to the rides and shows that Clark's has to offer, the girls will enjoy interesting presentations for age appropriate pathways. A Women in Railroading display will be available all day to the Girl Scouts to learn about the contributions, accomplishments and efforts of women in railroading over the past 100 years. Girl Scouts will receive discounts throughout the park when dressed in uniform. There are Clark's Bears Scouting patches for sale in the main gift shop to remember your day. All presentations will begin at the Scouting Tent and will have a limited amount of seating, so register early to reserve your spot.

Members from the US Forest Service will be teaming up to bring Girl Scouts information at three learning stations.

The presentations will end with a ceremony where each Girl Scout will receive a pin from the US Forest Service.

BROWNIES - BEARS AROUND THE WORLD 11:00-11:45: This presentation by Robert Wetherell will cover six different types of bears that exist all over the world, from New Hampshire's native Black Bears to the Sloth Bear of India! The Brownies will learn about the location, habitat and diet of each bear. They will also cover their conservation statuses and what makes each type of bear so special. There will be hands on artifacts for the girls to touch and learn from. After the presentation, we suggest the Brownies watch the 30-minute black bear performance at 12:00.

DAISIES - THE BEAR FACTS 1:00-1:30: Presented by Murray Clark, bear trainer and bear keeper. This presentation highlights black bears and their life cycle. Murray will cover information on both our bears and those in the wild. He will discuss age, diet, habitat and birth of the black bears. There will be hands on artifacts for the girls to touch and learn from. Discussions will cover how you can prevent bear problems in residential, agricultural or camping situations. We highly suggest the Daisy's attend the 12:00 Bear Show prior to attending the Girl Scout presentation.
