Bear spotting at Barnhardt Lodge

After lunch on Monday afternoon, an adviser, Adam Cesal, spotted a bear in the woods on the southern end of campus. The bear was located in the area by Barnhardt Lodge at around 2 PM. There is no further information on the bear at this time but the media team will update you as soon as information comes to us! Until then, remember what to do in case of a bear sighting.

Don’t approach the bear and never get in between a mother bear and cub. If you feel threatened, make yourself as big as you can and get loud to scare the bear away. Lastly, always alert Blue Ridge Staff on where the bear was sighted and when. Stay safe!
