Living in Carnivore Country Workshop

Thursday 4/12
530-7pm
At the Fremont County Library System – Lander
Hosted by Wyoming Game and Fish Department

It’s that time of year again when bears are waking up and people are preparing to enjoy the great outdoors. As spring arrives, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department reminds outdoor enthusiasts to be “bear aware” and take the necessary precautions to avoid conflicts with large carnivores.

We’re hosting an educational workshop and our large carnivore managers will present information about bear, mountain lion and wolf ecology, and more importantly, what people should do in an encounter with a large carnivore. In addition, there will be discussion on preemptive measures to be taken by the public in order to reduce the likelihood of conflicts with carnivores. People can use the information gained at these workshops to increase their knowledge about large carnivores and how to live and recreate safely in large carnivore country.
