Ideas for using BearWise Stuff
We ask everyone who downloads or orders BearWise materials what they plan to do with them. Responses range from post in our rental cabin, educate my grandchildren and share with my neighbors to hand out in campgrounds and keep our employees in bear country safe.
We also hear from businesses, homeowners associations, parks and forests, educators and librarians, realtors, law enforcement, members of the media and many more.
Here’s just a sample of the BearWise Buzz:
How will you use BearWise educational materials?

- Distribute via email to school faculty and summer camp directors.
- To post for our police department.

- These will be kept at our Office of Community Relations to help educate our citizens and tourists who visit the National Park daily.

- I will tape it on my front door to remind me how lucky me and my two dogs were when we were charged by a single male earlier this summer right in front of my house. My blood curdling scream stopped it in its tracks about ten feet away. My blood curdling scream also prompted a neighbor to call the cops cause they thought someone was being murdered. I carry a whistle now.
