Human-Bear Conflict Summary 2000-2014

Bear activity in the Bow Valley tends to occur in different places at different times of the year.

  • Pre Berry: den emergence to mid July
  • Berry: mid July to mid September
  • Post Berry: mid September to den up

Some Zones experience more (or less) activity based on seasonal food abundance. The following map illustrates where human-bear conflict has been occurring during berry season between 2000 and 2014. This summary is based upon a compilation of bear and wildlife information provided by government agencies and unconfirmed sightings reported by the public each week. It is not intended to be used as a real time, complete record of where bears are in the valley.
