Revelstoke Bear Aware’s mission is to reduce human-bear conflict through education, cooperation and active management initiatives in the community of Revelstoke and surrounding area. Over the years, Parks Canada and Revelstoke Bear Aware have worked collaboratively on Bear Smart Initiatives such as the development of a Bear Hazard Assessment and Management Plan, Bear Hazard Maps and a Garbage Bear Map. Parks Canada and Revelstoke Bear Aware also worked together with School District #19 to supply bear-proof garbage cans for each elementary school. In addition, Parks Canada and Revelstoke Bear Aware developed a Google Earth Map, an interactive tool for users to view reported bear sightings and associated bear attractants, on the Revelstoke Bear Aware website.
Parks Canada staff participate on the Revelstoke Bear Aware Society Committee to provide expertise and advice.
