In Bragg Creek we live in bear country. Even though they are rarely seen, bears are all around us, and it’s important to know some basic facts about bears and their behaviour. Some great information about black bears and grizzly bears is available here.
The Alberta BearSmart program aims to prevent and reduce human-bear encounters, not only to ensure our own safety but to safeguard the future of Alberta’s bear population.
Information for residents can be found here. This link takes you to all kinds of useful information, from how to keep bears out of your backyard, what you can teach your kids about bears, and what to do if you encounter a bear.
Be bear aware!
