Black bears once roamed over all of America’s forested lands. But after European settlement, their numbers and habitat dwindled. Thanks to conservation efforts, black bears are growing in numbers and returning to areas they once lived. BearWise educates individuals and communities on how to responsibly coexist with these amazing animals.

The gravesite of Lieutenant (Lt) Lewis Westcott, Coast Guard, was recently rediscovered at Loblolly Estate in Jarvisburg, North Carolina. Lt. Wescott was the Officer-in-Charge of Station Pea Island when the U.S. Life-Saving Service merged with the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service to create the Coast Guard, making Wescott the first African American and African American officer to command a Coast Guard shore facility.
He served from September 27, 1900, and served until 1916. The Coast Guard lost track of Lt. Westcott and was very excited with this discovery.
