Education put to the test

Local Kindergarten students recently had a bear encounter on a Fernie trail. Good thing they had earlier learned what to do when you see a bear!

It is always a pleasure to work with Kindergarten classes. The kids all love the role play what to do if you see a bear!

“I wanted to pass on that while my class was out for our outdoor Monday afternoon we came across a black bear up Old Stumpy. The kids did an AMAZING job staying calm, with the group and making noise – everything you had taught them! Thanks again for your amazing program. We were able to put some of it into practice today!”
