MEDIA PACKAGE – Camping and Hiking in Colorado Bear Country
Memorial Day weekend kicks off the unofficial start of summer for your readers, listeners and viewers. They will surely be making plans to hit the trails and pitch their tents, often in Colorado Bear Country. To help you when preparing stories about how to safely go Camping and Hiking in Bear Country, we’ve assembled some resources you can use and distribute to encourage a safer summer for our wildlife as well as our residents and guests. This Google Drive Folder contains some new items complied to help promote Bear Aware knowledge when enjoying the outdoors.
New items include:
Flyers in both English and Spanish regarding tips for Camping in Bear Country
A SMART animal safety flyer for kids that applies to many of our state’s wildlife
A Facebook live event on Friday, May 18 at noon demonstrating how to properly clean and maintain a campsite to reduce the chance for human-bear interactions. This video will be available for viewing/use shortly after the event.
