Mar.20 WildSmart Speaker Series – ‘Counting and Managing Grizzly Bears in Kananaskis Country’

Mar.20 poster final (for internet)
Our next Speaker Series event Counting and Managing Grizzly Bears in Kananaskis Country will be at the Canmore Collegiate High School Theatre on Tuesday, March 20th at 7pm.

Join John Paczkowski, Park Ecologist with Alberta Environment and Parks, for a presentation on grizzly bears in the Kananaskis Region and beyond. John will first present on the latest (hot off the press) grizzly bear population census work for grizzly bear management area 5 which includes Kananaskis Country down to the Crowsnest Pass. There will then be a discussion about the aversive conditioning program in Kananaskis Country. For almost 20 years, the program has aimed to reduce bear-human incidents by monitoring and conditioning grizzly bears in the region.

This is a free event however donations towards the WildSmart program are very much appreciated.

We hope to see you there!

Special thanks goes out to our event sponsors, Lafarge Canada and the Rotary Club of Canmore for their generous support of our speaker series!
