Preliminary bear hazard assessment of the municipality of the crowsnest pass : draft

Description

Bear Smart programs have been adopted and implemented in national and provincial parks across Canada. To initiate this program in Alberta, ABSP is launching a pilot project in the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass in southwestern Alberta. As a first step in this initiative, ASRD hired the Miistakis Institute to conduct a preliminary bear hazard assessment. The goal of the assessment is to identify sources of human and bear conflict in the Crowsnest Pass. The assessment provides a general overview of the community specific attractants and practices that contribute to human bear conflict. It also provides direction of initial steps for the community to become "bear smart" as well as identifying important information gaps.
