As part of its 25th anniversary, the Rotary Club of Los Osos worked to restore lighting to the bear statue on South Bay Boulevard near Turri Road.

The bear was previously illuminated by PG&E, but those lights have not worked for years. Rotary’s Gary Dove and Larry Box replaced the old lighting with new LED spotlights, a solar panel and computer control.
