Coexisting with Grizzly Bears Workshop, electric fending, grizzly bear safety and bear spray training, November 4, Jaffray Community Hall from 10 am to 1pm.

In response to a high level of grizzly bear activity in the South Country, WildSafeBC and Grizzly Bear Solutions will be cohosting a Grizzly Bear workshop at the Jaffray Community Hall on Sunday November 4th at 10 am free of charge.

Electric fencing workshop from 10 to 11:30 am.  Learn how to install and maintain electric fencing to protect your fruit trees, gardens, chickens and livestock from bears.   Cost sharing is available on your electric fencing for bears, contact grizzlybearsolutions@gmail.com

Grizzly bear safety and how to use bear spray at 11:30.  Learn more about grizzly bears and how to respond to wildlife encounters and get hands on experience using inert bear spray (like the real thing but without the sting of the pepper).  The safest wildlife encounter is one prevented.  Having bear spray accessible and knowing how to use it will give you the confidence to do the right thing (stay calm, assess the situation and respond accordingly) and not give in to the instinct to run (which can invoke the chase instinct).
