Take a walk on the wild side as we investigate one of Canada s most loved, feared, and misunderstood, wild animals. Unfortunately, the long-term outlook of the grizzly bears in our province is uncertain. Ever-expanding development, recreation, and resource extraction continue to increase while populations dwindle and habitat quality decreases. Biologists consider the grizzly bear to be an indicator species used to assess ecosystem health making them an excellent vehicle for learning about larger issues such as ecosystems, biological diversity and community, and population biology.

In this interactive session, adapted from CPAWS's Grizzly Bears Forever program, you will take part in curriculum-linked grizzly activities. Designed to inspire students (and adults) to become the next generation of grizzly bear stewards, these activities will help you better understand human impacts, how to stay safe in bear country, and how to advocate for these amazing animals!
