They can feel stressed, they can feel happy, they can even feel grumpy just
like you do.
They are self-aware, have a sense of self-preservation and are bears can be

Fun Fact: Bears are as intelligent and as curious a five year olds. I don’t know
about you, but I know how intelligent and curious five year olds can be.
So when visiting bear country, it is our responsibility to keep their space safe
from harmful and tempting attractants that could cause a bear to get into trouble.
So just like a five year old, we need to mind their space and interactions and
make sure that they don’t get into mischief or into trouble that could get them hurt.

Imagine how you would feel if you could keep a bear from getting into trouble when
you are venturing into bear country. It would feel pretty good, wouldn’t it!

Welcome to the Staying Safe Classroom.
If you could take a few minutes and answer a few questions before the course begins that would be awesome.
This will give me chance to get to know you, what your expectations are and your favourite way of learning.
Being able to identify the type of bear or bears you might meet on the trail is the first step to understanding the appropriate action steps to take in an unexpected encounter...

Bears are great communicators and it's up to us to learn what they are trying to tell us. In this module you will learn the signs and actions that a bear will show you to tell you whether she is feeling threatened, just traveling from point A to point B or he has other intentions in mind.
In the previous module, you learned how to read a bear's intentions. Is she feeling threatened? Or does he have something else in mind? In this module you'll learn the steps to take in response to what a bear is trying to communicate to you.
Night is coming soon... will you have a night time visitor? Setting up your campsite is the last step to take before bedding down for the night. Is your camp bear proofed?
