Event organizers have cancelled the event. They did not provide a reason but said it was due to unforeseen reasons.
Planning to spend some time in the great outdoors this year? This course could be a handy tool to have in the event you run into a bear or cougar!
Peter Pauwels, a conservation officer with the Ministry of Environment, and a trained Wildlife/Human Attack investigator will teach you to prevent, avoid and minimize conflicts with cougars and bears by understanding tactics for conflict prevention at home and in the wilderness.
Topics include basic biology and life cycles of cougars and bears, cougar and bear populations, behaviour, attacks on humans, conflict prevention and avoidance, and advice on what to do—and what not to do—when encountering cougars and bears.
When: March 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
