Bearly there

We all know that the U.S. Census is just part of a plot by the Federal Government to blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, but now they’re going after the bears! On Aug. 9, from 1 to 2 p.m. the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden (presumably part of the Illuminati) will host Where are the Bears?: SLO and Monterey County Bear Census Results with Wildlife Biologist Rocky Thompson. Topics discussed will include the status of the native bear population, how you can avoid interaction, and how to encourage wildlife health. The presentation is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. SLO Botanical Garden is at 3450 Dairy Creek Road. To find out more, go to slobg.org.
