Online Bear Awareness and Safety Course

I encounter bears almost every time I explore northern BC’s backroads. In fact, every spring bears wander through the university campus I work at. Basic bear awareness and safety is critical for those who venture into the backcountry.  Last year I took UNBC’s online Bear Awareness and Safety short-course. In this course I learned how to tell the difference b/w black and grizzly bears as well as how to distinguish b/w a bluff charge and attacking charge. I also learned how to react when encountering a bear. For more info about this inexpensive but high quality course go to:
