This year, speaker will be Lisa Robinson, President of the Board of Directors of the San Lorenzo Valley Historical Society. Her topic will be: Bear With Us - Bear Stories Of The Santa Cruz Mountains

In the mid-1700s, the San Francisco peninsula was home to large numbers of grizzlies. The abundance of food was shared between the hierarchy of wildlife and the native peoples; there was plenty for all. In just a few decades, this would change. Confrontations between man and bear often resulted in death or serious injury. By the late-1800s there were few grizzlies left here and by 1900, grizzlies, once prolific, had been hunted to extinction. This talk will recount stories of bear encounters, both grizzlies and black bears, in the Santa Cruz area from the late 1700s to the present day.
