Artist's Description

I invite you to view a short video about The Bears of Anan Creek. For seamless viewing you may wish to allow the video to download for a moment before watching it.

A black bear took a break from dining on fresh salmon. During summer months of July and August salmon return to spawn in beautiful Anan Creek, located in Southeast Alaska. In the midst of old growth SE Alaskan rainforest black and brown bears congregate at Anan Creek to fish and partake of the great feast of abundant salmon. Critical to the health of both wildlife and the rainforest, the entire southeast Alaskan ecosystem is supported by the gift of the salmon.

Mortal enemies, black and brown bears tolerate each other most of the time at Anan Creek since food is so abundant when salmon are running. Despite this, occasional dust ups between the two species of bears occur.

Anan Creek is a magical place to savor the clean moist air of old growth rain forest. Listen to bald eagles call from their high perches in moss-draped ancient trees while viewing bears and salmon continuing the age old Circle of Life.
