The public is invited to join Plains students for a special presentation about polar bears at the Plains High School gym on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 2 p.m.

Dr. Frank Tyro, who taught photography, TV production and mass communication at Salish Kootenai College in Pablo, will present video and photography from field trips to Churchill, Manitoba, to study polar bears. Tyro is president of the Great Bear Foundation, a group based in Missoula and Haines, Alaska, dedicated to preserving the eight species of bears and their habitat around the world. People from all over the world have joined the foundation on these field trips to observe bears in their natural habit and learn about Arctic ecology.

Tyro has won multiple awards for excellence in TV and film production, including being a finalist at the International Wildlife Film Festival. His presentation at Plains School is being sponsored by Clark Fork Enrichment Corporation, a nonprofit providing cultural enrichment opportunities throughout Sanders County.
