The Electric fencing workshop will be at 11. Workshop leader Gillian Sanders has helped to install more than 90 electric fences to successfully protect livestock and/or fruit trees from both black and grizzly bears. Correctly installed and maintained electric fencing provides a cost-effective and easy solution to prevent or stop bear conflicts. This workshop will discuss different e-fencing designs for permanent and temporary fences that can be adapted to your particular needs.

Also happening, apple pressing (bring your own elk valley apples and containers for freshly pressed juice), wildlife safety talk at 1:15, get hands on experience using inert bear spray, food preservation, worm composting and much more…Entry is by donation.
