Wild About Bears! is an activity guide designed to help educators teach in an interdisciplinary way using the topic of bears as an organizing concept. The guide promotes the appreciation, understanding and stewardship of bears throughout the world with particular focus on the bear species found in B.C. and bear/human interactions.

The guide provides a primer on the bears of the world, 14 activities designed to actively engage Grades K-7 students in experiential learning, and extensive appendices that contain information on bears of the Yukon, action learning, youth projects, tracks and tracking, additional teaching resources and cross-referencing to other WildBC materials.

The Wild About Bears Workshop will teach you about the species of bears that are found in British Columbia including their differences and how to distinguish them, where they live and their habits. Participants will also learn what to do to avoid problems with bears both at home and when adventuring outdoors as well as what to do in the case of a bear encounter. If you have ever wondered what you would do if you ran into a bear, then this is the workshop for you!
