30A South Walton black bear released Bears in South Walton: What You Need to Know

Black bear sightings have increased in South Walton, but is it because there are more bears, or because more people now share their encounters on social media?

Here in South Walton, spring temperatures mean an increase in tourists. And it also means more opportunities for potential encounters with some of our longtime locals: Florida black bears. In fact, Florida’s black bear population is on the rise, with sightings doubling statewide to nearly 6,200 every year.

There are a few things that every person who works or plays along 30A should be aware of regarding our furry neighbors.

Catherine Rodriguez of the Walton County Sheriff’s Office warns that it’s spring and black bears are waking up from their winter lethargy. Many mothers have cubs to protect and feed. Bears are motivated by hunger and with the dense population of well-fed humans making 30A their springtime get-away (and sometimes leaving their common sense back home), bear safety is a major concern for local authorities.

30A South Walton 1969348 660496220653935 304556384 n 1 Seaside to Host First Writers ConferenceFor two weeks in May, starting on May 12th, Seaside will become home base for two professional writers who will be participating in a series of events for the first Seaside Writers Conference.

Conceived by Seacoast Collegiate High School principal, Jonathan D’Avignon, the goals of this conference is to reach out to local students at both the middle and high school level and the general public by offering instruction with a heavy emphasis on the process of writing during a concentrated time period.

“Writing has seen a decline in importance through the myriad of state testing,” said D’Avignon. “I wanted to bring a new sense of urgency back to writing.”

With that mission in mind, D’Avignon reached out to former Florida State University college friends and accomplished writers Dr. Matt Bondruant and Dr. Seth Brady Tucker to see if they would be interested in assisting him with this idea. They jumped at the opportunity.

“I have wanted to spearhead a retreat like this for many years,” said Dr. Tucker. “And I believe that the fact that this experience is going to be developed and deployed by writers is going to give the conference a distinct literary flavor.”
