Bear Shadow proudly commits to the environmental conservation and preservation of The Highlands Plateau. In 2021 and 2022, Bear Shadow donated $50,000 to local organizations, including the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust and Highlands Biological Station. In 2024 we are partnering with Sky Valley-Scaly Mountain Volunteer Fire & Rescue to help keep our beautiful land and waterways safe for people and wildlife alike. A portion of the proceeds of every ticket purchase will go to support these organizations. Bear Shadow is a production of Highlands Festivals, Inc., a 501c3 organization.
