On the same note, on Wednesday, August 26th at the Fernie Bike Park Gazebo, Bear Aware is holding a free presentation on what to do when you encounter a bear.

“Due to popular demand WildSafeBC will be doing a short public presentation (30 minutes) on preventing wildlife encounters and how to safely use bear spray.   Inert bear spray (bear spray without the cayenne pepper) will be used to demonstrate.  This is your opportunity for hands on practice with the inert spray.” Read more here.
