|The California Grizzly: 19th Century Hero and Antagonist|
Susan Snyder will talk about our California State Symbol, the Grizzly Bear
History Museum of Sonoma County
Everybody had a bear story to tell in California in the 19th Century. While grizzlies are now sadly gone from our State, the stories survive in many forms. These tales make a composite portrait of the bears who once thrived and made their living here and also of the humans who gave them no quarter. The rugged individualist of the West and the beloved symbol of our State, the California grizzly still has tales to tell.
