Bear Monitoring Service Project
We are in partnership with the CU Wildlife Club and are co-sponsoring their weekly Bear Monitoring events to support the city in protecting the lives of bears. The club's Bear Walks are happening again each Saturday so sign up for a slotand clean-up some trash on the Hill with us! These will again start to take place EVERY weekend as weather permits and will be socially distanced. We will provide trash bags, gloves, educational materials to hand out, and clear instructions for volunteers. We ask that you bring a pen, water, and snacks for yourself.
In case you need a refresher on why we are hosting Bear Walks: During the fall, black bears are extremely active and often spotted in our urban areas as they prepare for winter hibernation. They need to eat 20,000 calories PER DAY to survive an entire winter without any food or water and are looking for the easiest, fattiest meals possible. Unfortunately, those meals tend to be found in our unsecured trash, compost, and bird feeders. We need your help getting our fellow Buffs and Boulder residents on board so we can remove these attractants and keep bears safe in their natural habitat.
We are following the current rules for student events and there are only five people allowed to sign up, get your spot quick!
