Joel Zachary, a noted black bear enthusiast, professional outdoor guide and author of Bears I’ve Met, will be the featured presenter at the upcoming “Adventures in Bear Country” program at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Sapphire Valley Resort Community Center. Also speaking will be officials from the local B.E.A.R Tasl Force, who will present an interactive program titled “Living Safely with Black Bears.” The task force is a major organizer of black bear education in the Cashiers and Highlands areas. Opening the program will be music by the “Grateful Dudes Trio” with George Reeves, Lee Ladensack and Dave Hunter from the Hurricane Creek Band. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children under 12. The event is sponsored by the B.E.A.R. Task Force, the Sapphire Valley Master Association and Mountain Wildlife Outreach.  The goal is to provide residents and visitors in Highlands, Cashiers, Sapphire, Lake Toxaway and others with a better understanding of the area’s black bear.
