GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - You might start noticing more teddy bears around Brown County next week.

Businesses are putting teddy bear decals in their windows as part of a month-long scavenger hunt in August. By finding the bears and taking pictures with them, you’re eligible for prizes.

But how does this tie in with breastfeeding awareness?

Beth Metsa, a community ambassador for the Brown County Breastfeeding Coalition, discusses the reason behind the scavenger hunt with Action 2 News at 4:30 anchor Chris Roth.

Details as provided by the Brown County Breastfeeding Coalition:

Each “window cling” bear will have a unique color bow and our BCBC logo. They will be approximately 8.5 x 11 in size. Each unique bear will be posted along with 3 clues on our Facebook site: Brown County WI Breastfeeding Coalition (@WIBCBC) One clue will be related to breastfeeding as an outreach of breastfeeding education.

Teddy Bear drawings are created by local artist Carolyn Paplham (@cpaplhamdraws).
