FWF’s southwest Florida office, which is in Naples, opened in 1994 with a goal to protect the western Everglades from sprawling growth and continues that mission to this day. FWF actively works to protect the habitat for the Florida black bear and to help reduce potential human-bear conflicts throughout Southwest Florida.
The event is on April 16th from 11:30-2:30 at Cambier Park. All the bears will be on display on the bandshell along with the artist’s photo/bio. We will have several PRHS students showcasing their musical talents from the band and talent show winners and the culinary students will be providing some light refreshments!
