Bear Smart

The County of Grande Prairie is proud to work with Alberta Environment and Parks on the Alberta BearSmart Program.  Alberta BearSmart is a public awareness program for people visiting, living or working in bear territory.  The goals of the BearSmart program are to:

  • Empower Albertans with the information to make safe decisions when in bear territory
  • Help bear populations survive by educating people on how to prevent encounters and how to respond appropriately in a bear encounter
  • Reduce property damage caused by bears

For questions or more information on Alberta BearSmart, please contact Alberta Environment and Parks at 310-0000 (toll-free in Alberta).
