Bear, Lion and Wolf Country
Seminars

Would you know what to do if you suddenly encountered a wolf or grizzly bear while hiking, if a black bear entered your camp looking for food, or if you were surprised by a mountain lion in your back yard?

If you're not sure how to react in these situations, plan to attend one of the Game and Fish Department's "Staying Safe in Bear, Lion and Wolf Country" seminars.

The purpose of the seminars is to increase awareness and understanding of bears, mountain lions, and wolves by providing participants with information and tools they can use to prevent conflicts and avoid dangerous encounters.

Presentations will feature behavior and biology, life history, population status and movements, proper food storage, safety and legal issues, what to do in an encounter situation, and the most current information on the use of bear spray.

Each seminar is free and open to people of all ages and skill levels.
