How to involve your family in the Walking Bears project:

***You must live in the Bridgeton, Camlachie, Dalmarnock or Parkhead areas with a child aged 3 - 5 to qualify for a pack***

  • Take photos of you and your bear as you go and share them to the Walking Bears Facebook Group for other families to see where you've been.
  • Once you've visited most/all locations, complete the evaluation form in your pack and send back using the stamp addressed envelope provided along with your passport to show where you've been.
