AHEIA wants you to enjoy spending time with your friends and family in the great outdoors. However, we also want you to be aware that bears can pose a very real threat to your safety as you camp, fish, hike, hunt, climb, or work through Alberta’s forests.
We value lives—yours and the bear’s – and there are many steps you can take to ensure you both remain safe while sharing the same space. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of Alberta’s bears and how they interact with the natural environment, avoidance techniques you can use to prevent encountering bears, and how to respond in the event that you do come face-to-face with one of these magnificent animals.
