On August 14 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 pm, the San Lorenzo Valley Museum hosted a networking mixer with the San Lorenzo Valley Chamber of Commerce. The museum’s current exhibit, “Bear with us – Bear stories of the Santa Cruz Mountains,” was well presented with humor and excitement.

The exhibit showcases grizzly bears in our region from the 1700s to the early 1900s, by which time the once-flourishing population became extinct. If you stop by the museum, you will learn about bear encounters with the human settlers in the area, the food hierarchy between wildlife and native peoples, and exactly how the bear population declined. There are hands-on activities and other interactive elements to the exhibit that will be of interest to attendees of all ages. 

The SLV Museum, 12547 Highway 9 in Boulder Creek
