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 on the Sustainable Resource Development website

The Alberta BearSmart program aims to prevent and reduce human-bear encounters, not only to ensure our own safety but also to safeguard the future of Alberta’s bear population.

Residents may also want to educate themselves further with all kinds of useful information, like 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!
