Bear Awareness and Bear Safety Presentations scheduled throughout the Elk Valley

Bear Aware Community Coordinator Kathy Murray will be delivering Bear Aware workshops to schools and other groups of interest throughout the Elk Valley. “Students are the best way to deliver the message to a broad audience, get the message out and get the family to act on it!. They will all be given a little homework, the Bear Aware Homeowners Checklist to be completed with help from their families.”
