Teddy Bear Hunt
Every year on Father's Day, the Izaak Walton Huntington chapter hosts a teddy bear hunt as a part of Huntington's Heritage Days. Kids can purchase a $5 hunting pass to join a guided hunt for teddy bears on the chapter property. The hunters will fill out a hunting pass with a DNR officer and learn about population control as a part of conservation efforts. Each hunter will get to name and adopt a teddy bear to take home. They will also get a meal included with their hunting pass. Smokey the Bear and local firefighters will help our hunters find bears along our hiking trails. Other activities will include bear-themed coloring pages, face painting, fire extinguisher demonstration, a bounce house, a bear crawl competition, and more. If any local businesses would like to donate teddy bears or food for this great event, please contact us at HuntingtonCountyiwla@gmail.com or (260)438-8704.
