Registration for hands-on Bear Awareness Session is now CLOSED. No more sessions will be held until the 2018 field season. Tom Hantos, Biological Sciences Safety Officer offered 8 hands-on sessions this past May and trained 63 field researchers. Many thanks Tom! You can practice your bear spray skills after viewing the Alberta BearSmart video . Make sure to use expired bear spray or an inert can (available at Kodiak Wildlife Products Inc.) on a calm, non-windy day.
