BC Bear Day on Sunday, September 22

BC Bear Day on September 22: The Pipeshop in North Vancouver is a large beautiful open space as seen here.

We’re going to be in North Vancouver at the Pipe Shop in Lower Lonsdale on Sunday. It’s a stunning space and we’re going to have a great day. There’s free family events all day from 11am to 4pm and then we’re having speakers and a panel discussion starting at 6pm. You will need tickets for the panel! It’s going to be an inspiring day dedicated to advancing co-existence with bears.

This year we have a packed day for children and families with bear yoga, to face-painting, bear research class, an adventure in wildlife photography with local wildlife photographer Ian Harland, music from The Wilds, treats from Earnest Ice-Cream, and fun activities from a host of community partners.

Speakers and panel discussion, 6pm to 8pm

The evening (6-8pm booking required), is focussed on co-existence with bears. In that spirit, we will be welcomed by Charlene Aleck from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation and then the Takaya dancers. The evening’s main speaker will be Doug Neasloss, Stewardship Director for the Kitasoo /Xai’xais Nation and lead guide for Spirit Bear Adventures.

Following Doug, other experts will join a panel to discuss how we can advance effective co-existence with bears throughout BC, including the communities adjacent to the mountains and forests that surround much of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
