The goal of local food crops is to feed humans and not contribute to the food conditioning of local wildlife. A properly installed electric fence can be an effective deterrent to prevent bears and other wildlife from accessing attractants such as chicken coops, apiaries, fruit trees and gardens. This workshop will review the guidelines prepared by WildSafeBC which is based on standards established by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC). We will install a functioning electric fence and test it. This workshop is interactive and active participation is encouraged. Please be dressed for the weather and wear boots or other protective footwear.
There is no fee but registration is required. In partnership with Brennan Park.
This workshop is part of Squamish CAN’s Food Education Series- one session every month, no charge, but donations appreciated to keep the program running!
