Warren County Parks and Recreation unveils new mascot

Warren County Parks and Recreation announced the newest and wildest addition to their team, Warren!

Warren is the department’s new mascot and he is a Black Bear from the Blue Ridge Mountains.

He loves watching humans play and go on adventures throughout the Valley, making him a perfect fit for Parks and Rec.

The other bears would tease him when he would try to play baseball with a stick and walnuts, or ball up an opossum to try to play basketball.

He even learned to swim and became the first bear lifeguard of the mountains.

Warren made his first appearance at the Festival of Leaves.

You can find him during Wednesday’s with Warren on Warren County Parks and Recreation’s Facebook page.

Make sure to say hello and make Warren feel welcome if you see him out and about in the community.

You can’t miss him as he will be the only bear walking around in a vest and green hat!
