About Wild Bear ~ The Wild Bear Mountain Ecology Center is a unique gem in the front range. Since 1995, Wild Bear is Boulder County’s only all-ages nature center annually serving thousands of people through the free and open walk in nature center as well as formal workshops for all ages. Wild Bear is known for its high-quality creative children’s workshops, keeping the next generation connected to the natural world. Come to a Wild Bear community concert and learn more about what’s going on at Wild Bear. You can also visit Wild Bear online at www.wildbear.org or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wildbearecology.
About the concerts ~ Together with Little Tree Acoustic House Concerts in Lafayette, CO, Wild Bear brings nationally and internationally touring performers up to the mountains. The intention of the series is to support grassroots music that brings community together to contemplate the beauty of the arts in nature. Wild Bear is proud to collaborate with Little Tree to build community surrounding the mission of Boulder County’s only all ages nature center.
Wild Bear Community Concert Traditions ~ A community celebrates through its traditions, and Wild Bear has given some thought to the traditions that are a part of its fun community concert series. In addition to sharing food together before the music starts, a unique tradition we share is a ride on Nederland’s Carousel of Happiness together before every concert. The Carousel is a compelling story of the power of music to maintain footing in the face of life’s challenges. As such, Wild Bear and Little Tree feel a joyful community ride before every concert is a fitting tribute.
Donations ~ All artist donations support the performer. In addition, separate donations can be made to directly support Wild Bear’s mission and its ability to host these events. We suggest $20 and up ($25 and up the day of the show), on a sliding scale, meaning you are welcome to pay more if you value and can afford a little more to support live music. Please do what you can to keep live music and Wild Bear alive and thriving.
When ~ Saturday August 13th. Doors open for the pot luck dinner at 6:30pm. Carousel of Happiness ride at 7:15pm. Music starts at 7:30pm.
Drinks ~ Wild Bear has a liquor license, and the wine and beer sales help us cover the costs associated with the shows. So please consider coming thirsty and helping us support the series by enjoying a glass of wine or beer.
Format ~ There are typically two sets of music, with an opportunity to learn about the Ecology Center, meet the artist(s), and purchase CDs, books, or whatever else they have for you at intermission. We will end by 9:30pm.
