Rawr! Ursinology 101 will give Reedies a chance to nerd out with fellow enthusiasts about these wonderful fuzzy mammals. Day 1 will cover the science and evolution of bears as well as a very “scientifically rigorous” way to discover which of the 8 species of bears you are. Day 2 will cover bears in culture, from global worship of bears across the world to Freddie Fazbear, Winnie the Pooh, and every iconic bear in between. Day 3 will cover some of the serious issues threatening bears today, bear conservation efforts, and will present the documentary Beartrek, which is about four such efforts across the globe. Led by Hailey Poutiatine.
