BEAR DAY is on Saturday April 13th at the Canmore Nordic Centre!
To coincide with bears’ emergence from their winter dens, WildSmart is hosting Bear Day at Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park’s Day Lodge.
This event is a celebration and welcoming of grizzly bears back on the landscape for another year. It’s also a great opportunity for the public to learn more about our area’s grizzly bears and serves as a reminder that it’s time once again to be bear aware.
Indoor and outdoor activities include bear spray demonstrations, bear safety talks, a bear trapping demonstration, and a scavenger hunt for the kids! Learn how to camp safely in bear country, and view grizzly bear and other wildlife displays. Back by popular demand, we will have hikes for families to learn the ins and outs of being “bear aware” on the trail in a fun and interactive way (registration required).
This is a FREE family-friendly event! Activities begin at 9:00 am and end at 3:00 pm. In the event of inclement weather, the majority of activities will take place indoors.
