Bear Day 2017

@item.Name

Come and celebrate grizzly bears!

Mark April 8th on your calendars! To coincide with bears’ emergence from their winter dens, Alberta Parks and WildSmart are once again 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 Kananaskis Country’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 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.

Activities begin at 9:30 am and end at 3:00 pm. In the event of inclement weather, the majority of activities will take place indoors.
