2021 Forest Festival

The Forest Festival at Barton Flats returns for 2021! This year’s Festival will be held on August 21, 10 am to 3 pm, at the Barton Flats Visitor Center.

Enjoy a day in the forest and try your hand at using a two-person crosscut saw and panning for gold; make nature crafts; learn about wild animals rescued by the Big Bear Alpine Zoo; talk to firefighters about the challenges of fighting forest fires and lots more.

Smoky Bear will be there to greet visitors too! Here’s a map: https://bit.ly/3v9Yi1r.
