Here’s an idea for a fun weekend for the kids and Dad. Take them out to the Big Pine Fishing Access Site near Alberton.  Fish Wildlife and Parks has a kids day planned.  They’ll be teaching kids about bears. They’re getting help from the Great Bear Foundation.  They Foundation will share fun facts about bears and provide tips on how to be bear safe at home and while hiking and camping.  An adult must accompany all program participants.

To reach Big Pine FAS, take I-90 Exit 66 and then head south to Fish Creek Road.  Follow the signs to Big Pine, approximately 4.5 miles from the exit.  Visitors should park in the lot to the left when entering the campground.
