Bear Shadow proudly commits to the environmental conservation and preservation of The Highlands Plateau. In 2021 and 2022, Bear Shadow donated $20,000 to local organizations, including the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust and Highlands Biological Station. In 2023 we are partnering with Sky Valley-Scaly Mountain Volunteer Fire & Rescue and The Resource Institute to help keep our beautiful land and waterways safe for people and wildlife alike. $25 of every ticket purchase will go to support these organizations. Bear Shadow is a production of Highlands Festivals, Inc., a 501c3 organization.
Since 2016, Highlands Festivals, Inc. and ZeroHero have diverted over 15,000 lbs of waste from landfills through their recycling and composting efforts.
