A new program of the Nashua River Watershed Association, *A Bear Affair: An Afternoon Adventure for Young Bear Lovers and their Families* is set for Saturday, November 17, 2012, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., somewhere in Groton — the location will be given to people who pre-register for the program.

According to a NRWA press release, “Explore the world of one of our largest local residents, the black bear! We”ll look for bear clues in the woods and learn all about bears and their amazing adaptations using skins, skulls and tracks. We”ll share a “beary” snack and you”ll make your very own bear track to take home. Teddy bears welcome!”

This program is appropriate for ages 4 to 10 years and their families; backpack babies welcome! Fee for NRWA members is $6/person or $18/family; for non-members, $8/person or $24/family. Pre-registration is required. Directions to program location will be provided upon registration. To register, contact Mary Marro, NRWA Environmental Education Director, at (978) 448-0299 or MaryM@NashuaRiverWatershed.org. The NRWA is a non-profit environmental organization that depends on memberships for support.
