Bald Eagle

The Buckhannon-Upshur Chamber of Commerce headed south for their monthly meeting on Monday, gathering at the West Virginia Wildlife Center in French Creek to hear from wildlife biologist Tyler Evans. The facility has been a staple of Upshur County for nearly 100 years, attracting visitors from around the United States — and from around the world, as we wrote about last year.

Evans spoke about some of the wildlife center’s newest inhabitants, including Lewis and Clark, the young mountain lions. After the presentation, My Buckhannon photographer Brian Bergstrom strolled along the loop with his camera in tow. Here are a few of the images he captured.
