Black bears have lived in the forests of Colorado since long before the pioneers arrived. Today black bears are trying to share space with an ever-growing human population. With many more people living and playing in bear country, human-bear encounters are on the rise. 

Bears have an excellent sense of smell and a great memory. Feeding a bear, or allowing one to eat your trash, is a death sentence for a bear. We can all make a difference and must be smarter than your average bear.  Be Bear Aware
