The Waterton Biosphere Reserve Association would like to invite you to attend an upcoming Carnivores and Communities  meeting regarding bear and wolf activity in southwestern Alberta, which will include updates on support available to help landowners reduce the risk of conflict with carnivores on their land.

The Carnivores and Communities program was developed in 2009, building upon work being done by local ranchers in southwestern Alberta to deal with an increase of large carnivores in the area.   Currently the program offers support for carnivore research and landowner projects to assist landowners in managing risk.   This includes local deadstock removal, providing bear proof grain bin doors, electric fencing and new in 2015, bear proof garbage bins.

We hope you will be able to join us at one of two upcoming meetings:

Wednesday March 2 at the Cowley Hall – 7pm
Thursday March 3 at the Cardston Seniors Centre – 7pm

If you have questions or would like further information please contact:

Jeff Bectell at or 403 653 2219 or Tony Bruder at or 403 627 5425
