Hike in Bear Country

Wednesday, October 23, 9:00 am Register by Email

Back by popular demand, this is a special hike led by Erin Bohm, Bear Smart Educator from Bear Smart Durango. She will lead the group through bear habitat in the Lightner Creek area, through meadows, forests and down into a steep ravine. The hike is all off-trail, mostly bushwhacking through dense oak brush. We will learn about bears in the wild, how to hike in bear country and human-bear conflict while looking for signs of bears Poles will be very helpful for the steep ravine descent.
Carpool $2. Limit 18. EVERYONE must RSVP due to limit. NO dogs.
