The ‘Bear in Mind’ museum exhibit is now open at the OC Agricultural and Nikkei Heritage Museum at the Fullerton Arboretum. The exhibit will be open to the public through March 31st, 2019. The Arboretum requests a donation of $5 per person to help support the museum.

Hours: Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12-4 PM

This compelling exhibition tells the story of one of California's most beloved and feared animals – the grizzly bear. The relationship that Californians have had with the grizzly bear over the centuries is one of dualities, expressed in fear and fascination. Now extinct in the state, the grizzly has been a central character in California's history.
The exhibit shows how the grizzly was:
■ Seen as the embodiment of California's “untamed” wilderness
■ Used as a symbol of freedom and power by the Bear Flag Rebellion and later the state itself (that's a grizzly on the state flag)
■ Driven to extinction as California was settled
■ Used in advertising and propaganda to sell products and ideas
The exhibition also presents scientifically accurate information about grizzly bear biology, dispelling some of the myths about this top predator. It includes special sections for children and interactive elements to engage visitors of all ages.
‘Bear in Mind’ is based on the Heyday Book publication Bear in Mind: The California Grizzly by Susan Snyder, and the Bancroft Library exhibition of the same name.
The exhibition includes:
■ Over 30 text and image panels
■ Panels designed for children
■ Introductory film
■ Hands-on interactives
■ Engaging grizzly bear artifacts
■ Exhibition press kit with digital images
■ Interpretive materials: Gallery Guides, Docent Guide, Teacher Guide

Hours: Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12-4 PM

Parking at the Arboretum is free, and additional parking is available in the California State University Fullerton Lot G.

All proceeds from donations support plant conservation, environmental education programs, and the diverse gardens of the Fullerton Arboretum.
