Elk Valley Bear Aware

Elk Valley Bear Aware

Bear Aware’s mission is to reduce the number of human-bear conflicts in communities through education, innovation and cooperation. This reduction in human-bear conflict is accomplished by providing education, information about attractant management, and assistance about the tools available to secure bear attractants. Owned by the British Columbia Conservation Foundation, with funding support from various levels of government and private organizations, the Bear Aware Program works closely with municipalities, regional districts, local societies, and volunteer groups.

In Elkford, the Elk Valley Bear Aware Program works together with the District of Elkford and local residents, businesses, and organizations to provide education and to reduce the number of bear attractants in order to keep bears wild and the community safer.
