Here are the differences between the Black and Brown Bear. However, if you see one heading towards you don't worry about identifying which one it is. Just make a lot of noise, or run for the nearest solid shelter, if it is not impressed by your sound effects. ;-)
Sadly these bears will never be able to be returned to the wild, so they will either stay here or be sold to a zoo.
Through the years, the stockade was used by a wide variety of people until it fell into disrepair. In 2004, the old stockade was torn down and replaced by the present-day structure, at a cost of a little over $800,000. Today, tourists and others stop by the Gordon Stockade, getting a feeling for how those that migrated to this territory 140 years ago, actually lived and protected themselves from hostile Indians.
This s the spot we chose for our picnic. Our own chairs and cooler, sitting outside in the shade with a lovely view.
