Local News & Such

Good news for Fawnskin! We are getting recycle bins at the Triangle…unless you live in the mountains where many areas do not have pickup this probably means nothing to you…but it is big excitement around these parts!

In other news:


A new CERT class will begin in Big Bear Lake on November 17th. For more information about becoming a CERT member call the Big Bear City Fire Department at 585-2362.

Locally, CERT training continues on the last Saturday of the month at the Fawnskin Fire Department at 2pm.

The training helps you help the community in times of disaster.

Big Bear Zoo

The new plans for the Big Bear Zoo will be up for public comment for 45 days. The zoo is to be constructed adjacent to the Discovery Center on the North Shore in Fawnskin.

If nothing negative delays the project the U.S. Forest Service will review all documents and determine whether or not to grant a Forest Service permit for the new zoo.

Earlier this year an additional one million dollars was deposited for the project into the San Bernardino County General Funds which brings the County General Fund for the project to $7,325,000. The Friends of the Moonridge Zoo have already raised $600,000 in private donations but this is still a long way from meeting the estimated cost of the proposed zoo relocation project which is thought to need between $22-25 million with $1.5 need just for the construction documents.

At the recent NSIA potluck locals learned that the proposed zoo will cover 26 total acres with 11.25 acres dedicated to the park and 7.5 acres for parking and a 100 foot fire break around the entire perimeter.
