Bear Aware is an educational wildlife program with a goal to teach human responsibility in removing attractants in order to reduce conflicts with black bears in Colorado. Volunteer efforts aim to reduce or eliminate bear break-ins through education, aversive conditioning and community action. Volunteers distribute bear information to the public in neighborhoods where conflicts occur, post signs, go door to door talking to neighbors, and volunteer at information booths and parades.
As needed in response to neighborhood issues. Busier season is March - November.
Engage with local communities, provide information about black bears in Colorado while supporting local staff.
