Sandia Mountain Bear Collaborative was represented at the Bear Festival on August 24. The event was great and well-attended! The event was hosted at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center. At the SMBC table, we discussed bear safety, hiking with predators, and how not to feed bears.
Vendors and face painters, along with other bear safety organizations were represented, and bear safety demonstrations were given by wildlife biologist Daryl Ratajczak.
