WildSafe BC Bear Spray Demonstration at the Radium Library

  • Tue July 23, 2019 6:00 PM

The best bear encounter is the one you avoid. Encounters do happen though, so it is important to carry bear spray. It is just as important to know how to use bear spray properly.

Join your WildSafeBC community coordinator in a hands on bear spray demonstration. You will learn:

* bear encounter statistics
* bear identification and behaviour
* how to avoid a bear encounter
* types of encounters
* bear spray basics
* and, how to deploy bear spray properly

After the learning session, we will have the opportunity to practice our skills outside using inert cans of spray, weather permitting.
