"Bears Without Fear" Presentation and Book Launch - Golden

Jun 15 2013 19:00

Do bears tickle your curiosity? Join Wildsight and bear expert, Kevin Van Tighem, for an intriguing talk on keeping both bears and people safe and living in harmony together.

"In bear country, staying safe is a matter of survival – for bears as well as people. Join Kevin Van Tighem as he discusses how, through understanding and demystifying preconceived fears, not only can people coexist with bears, we can ensure their survival in the wild.
