The BC Bear Day festival is taking place next month in North Vancouver. It is a presentation of the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, the North Shore Black Bear Society and CapU Earthworks.

The festival promises to have lots of activities that should appeal to people of all ages. Some of those planned activities are set to include fish printing, face painting and storytelling. There will also be live musical performances and a puppet show.

There will also be workshops and presentations on bears including bear safety. In addition, the sponsoring organizations will be hosting displays about their programs and services. Guides will also be taking guests on interpretive walks.

People in many areas are seeing bears more often and it is important that they understand how to deal with them. This event should help set their minds at ease or at least let them know who to call for help.

No doubt many people in the North Vancouver area will be interested it attending this family-friend event. To spread the word, organizers may invest in flyer printing services.

The BC Bear Day festival will be held at Capilano University’s Cedar Courtyard on April 1 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. Admission is free. For more information about the event or about the sponsoring organizations, contact Marja De Jong at 604-986-1911 x3478.
