Bears, tents and reducing conflicts

Brandon Drost from Yukon College will present the results of a joint study he carried out at Congdon Creek Campground last summer with Yukon Parks. Join us and learn what campers thought of an electric bear fence set up to protect a new tenting enclosure.

A panel discussion will follow. Brandon will be joined by Conservation Officer Ken Knutson and Heather Ashthorn from WildWise Yukon. The three recently attended the 5th International Human-Bear Conflicts Workshop in Tennessee and will share highlights of new research on reducing conflicts with bears.

All are welcome to attend.
