Come join us in Orr, Minnesota - "The best place in North America to view and photograph black bears and cubs in their natural habitat." Nestled in the North Woods of Minnesota, the Sanctuary is located approximately two hours northwest of Duluth. The nearest town is Orr, which is about thirty minutes away. While black bears are the primary focus, the various habitats of the Sanctuary are home to a variety of fauna and flora, including - pine martin, woodchuck, chipmunk, and red squirrels. Songbirds are particularly abundant in May. The sanctuary is closed to the public at this time, and we have it entirely to ourselves.
Through an exclusive arrangement, experience and photograph the behavior and secretive life of the normally reclusive black bear. Gain first hand valuable insight about bear biology, ecology, and habitat. We are proud to offer this Photographic Workshop at this unique Sanctuary. This is one you will not want to miss. This workshop provides you with an amazing in-field photographic experience.
Our primary focus in May will be cubs born in January or February; fur-balls of energy, inquisitive and playful they are sure to delight even the most accomplished wildlife photographer. With many bears present this is a great time to capture behaviorial interaction, and portraits, along with cubs of all sizes.
