Photograph Black Bears with professional photographer John Slonina. We will be visiting one of the best places in North America to photograph and observe wild Black Bears.
Black Bear cubs are born in January/February and have recently left the den which makes June the perfect time to photograph the Bear cubs and families etc. We plan to photograph several different age groups and behaviours.
We also will be on the lookout for other wildlife that visits the refuge and the nearby areas including Songbirds, Chipmunks, Red Squirrels, and on rare occasions Wolf.
It is a incredible photo oppurtunity.
