Bear Safety with Kim Titchener

Learn How to Avoid Encounters with Bears and Be Better Prepared

We live, work and play in bear country. It is our responsibility to know how to avoid bear encounters and what to do if we run into a bear.

In this bear safety workshop, you will learn how to avoid encounters with bears and be better prepared to respond to defensive or non-defensive encounters. You will learn about bear ecology and identification, how to identify signs of a bear in the area and avoid bear encounters, types of bear attacks and what to do in the event of an attack.
