Learn to be Bear Aware
Join the Town of Banff and Parks Canada in an interactive Bear Aware session
that will have you learning how to be safe in bear country. The 60-minute in-person
session will be led by two Parks Canada wildlife specialists and includes a presentation on how to identify different types of bears, common bear behaviours and tools and tips to prevent bear encounters. Online, in-person, and family focused sessions are available throughout May. Learn more, and find all the details at banff.ca/Events.
Into the Woods
Into the Woods is a program for parents, toddlers, and kindergartners, that nurtures each child's natural curiosity to build safe connections to our mountainous backyard. Opportunities to discover and grow are plentiful as your child becomes immersed in sensory-based experiences, stories, crafts, songs, tinkering, building, and imaginative play.
