The Western Black Bear Workshop has been providing a forum for bear managers, research biologists, and others to share information about bear research and management from Central America to Canada since 1979.
The 12th Workshop will take place in Canmore, Alberta, hosted by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development and the Alberta Conservation Association.
