Even if you’ve never had the chance to spot a black bear in Big Bend, here’s your opportunity to dress up like one without feeling silly! Both the state of Texas and our own Brewster County have mandated face covers, so have a little wildlife-related fun with yours.
Breathable, machine-washable 2-layer pleated style non-surgical fabric mask with a filter pocket, 100% polyester outer layer and 100% cotton inner layer, with soft elastic ear loops. Of course, they’re not intended for clinical use, etc. Big Bend Natural History Association employees have been wearing these, and we find them comfortable even in Big Bend August temperatures.
As a bonus, the vendor donates a portion of proceeds to conservation causes, including the Public Lands Alliance. BBNHA members will recognize the PLA logo from the back of your membership card—it’s the non-profit group that sponsors and organizes the reciprocal discount program that gets you a discount in many other public lands bookstores.
Adult size, approx. 7” x 3-3/4” when pleated
