Volunteer Opportunity: ‘Bin’ There, Done That

September 20, 2012 - 4:00pm to 10:00pm

The Nature Conservancy has a few exciting volunteer opportunities coming up and we want to get the word out!

Old grain bins can be an irresistible attractant for bears and can draw them into inhabited areas, increasing the number of human-bear interactions which is dangerous for both bears and humans. NCC is working with local landowners and leaseholders to replace old grain bins with new bear-proof ones in the Waterton Park Front, but we need your help! Join us for a day of hands-on conservation as we work to remove an old grain bin from the Jenkins conservation property and take a positive step towards reducing human-bear interactions in the area. The property leaseholder will be on-hand to share the historical and personal significance of this particular grain bin. A local bear expert, will also be present to share more about bear ecology in the Southern Rockies!
