On July 8, a bear was sighted on the Island's restored trail network at the Harley/Burchill Crossing. Though our trail cameras have shown no further evidence of the bear's presence, we urge patrons to use caution on the trails. Check back for more updates in the coming days. The Friends of Beaubears Island remain vigilant during the COVID-19 pandemic. In compliance with existing guidelines, and wishing the safety of both our staff and our guests, all of our programming and events will be offered to one ‘bubble’ at a time.
