The Eastern Sierra region of California, along with much of the western United States, is suffering from serious drought conditions. As a result of the lack of water and moisture, plants and shrubs are less productive and local wildlife are finding a shortage of natural forage and food.
The black bear populations of the Sierra Nevada rely upon plants and shrubs to survive. A shortage of native food sources for these animals is forcing bears to seek alternative food sources, including human food and trash.
As part of a National and State parks tour from California to Colorado, Rangeelay Theatre ensemble presents INâ€™Tents at 11 a.m. at Mono Lake Scenic Area Visitor Center and 4:30 p.m. at the Mammoth Lake Welcome Center, in the Forest Service Amphitheather.
INâ€˜Tents is a fun and educational family show. Through hilarious misadventures, park ranger Patricia Pinky and first time camper Chipotle learn how to camp, preserve and enjoy their natural spaces. The show is full of chaplin-esque physical comedy!
