BE BEAR AWAYRE CAMPAIGN / by David Lawrence

Citizens of Mineral County,

Over the past few years, bear activity, including grizzly bears, has apparently increased in our back yards. The Be Bear Aware Campaign is looking to train people to become Bear Aware Instructors. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, ATV Clubs, Equine organizations….any group or individual who would like to become an instructor is urged to contact Chuck Bartlebaugh at  239-2315. Orbearinfo@cfwi.org for more information.

We are currently scheduling our Bear-Avoidance Educational Trailer for 2015. The classroom on wheels is available to community groups and youth groups such as boy scouts, girl scouts, 4H, and Campfire. We can also work with hunting and fishing organizations. We specialize in bear avoidance training and how to properly carry and use bear spray. We have been a supporting unit for triathlons, bike races, camps, resorts, and downtown promotional events.

If you have an event that you would like to include the bear-avoidance training in, please email us with the name of your organization, the name of your event, location, and dates. The area we usually cover spans from Casper, WY to Spokane, WA.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Chuck Bartlebaugh
Director
