Bears, biking, hiking… Do you know how to use bear spray?
Come along and learn how to respond to wildlife encounters and get hands on experience using inert bear spray (like the real thing but without the sting of the pepper). Sunday July 2nd at 2pm at the Fernie Bike Park Gazebo behind the aquatic centre.
The safest wildlife encounter is one prevented. Having bear spray accessible and knowing how to use it will give you the confidence to do the right thing (stay calm, assess the situation and respond accordingly) and not give in to the instinct to run (which can invoke the chase instinct).

Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to the work party to complete the landscaping around the Fairy Creek Bridge.
