About Wild Bear
Since 1995, Wild Bear provides year-round, hands-on education to people of
all ages, fostering a life-long appreciation of the environment and
promoting an environmentally aware, responsible and ecologically sound
community. Wild Bear’s long-term vision has been to create a nature center facility in the mountains near Nederland and was a key partner in the preservation of Mud Lake Open Space. Wild Bear organized 134 volunteers to remove over 30 tons of trash off of the Mud Lake property and Wild Bear developed and received full approvals to create an off-grid nature center on its own 5 acres at Mud. In 2010, as another milestone toward creating the nature center at Mud Lake, Wild Bear opened a small interim Nature Center in downtown Nederland, the first non-profit Nature Center in Boulder County.
