Our mission is to reduce conflict in neighbourhoods between people and bears,
through education, innovation and cooperation.

Our 2023 calendar is now available by donation!  

Calendar sales help fund our educational and research programs. 

Each month includes helpful tips and a great bear photo from a local photographer.

They make excellent gifts, so you might consider getting a few...

April 2023 update: We still have a few calendars left.  

We welcome you to pay what you like to enjoy the rest of the year's worth of bear photos.  Original price of $20 now reduced to a minimum donation of $10 to cover costs.

Our primary means of accomplishing this goal is through public education about coexistence with the bears that share our community.  We can help you learn to correctly manage your "backyard bear attractants".

We are also helping work towards the achievement of provincial Bear Smart status for the City of Prince George.

Was your Garbage tagged?

Thank you for being a part of our Garbage Audit Program. Please help us keep people and bears safe. Waiting until the morning to put out garbages means that bear are less likely to be attracted into your neighbourhood by tempting smells. Learn more about managing attractants.

 Another good reason to wait till the morning: The Garbage Collection Regulatory Act was officially amended March 5, 2012, meaning garbage bins are to be put out no earlier than 4am on the day of pick up.
