Bear Wise Workshop at Curt Gowdy State Park

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be hosting a free Bear Wise workshop to address black bear issues in and around Curt Gowdy State Park.

The free workshop will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 23 in the conference room of the Curt Gowdy State Park Visitor Center.

As black bears have been more active lately, here are some tips for a Bear Wise campsite:

  • Never store attractants in your tent.
  • Store all food, garbage, and other odorous items in an area that bears cannot access.
  • If you can, store attractants in a vehicle, hard-sided campers, horse trailers, or bear boxes.
  • Store food and coolers suspended from a tree at least 10ft to 15ft high and 4ft from the tree trunk.
  • Your sleeping area should be 100 meters from the food storage and cooking area.
  • All pet food and animal feed should be properly stored.
  • Wipe down your dining area and kitchen after each use.
  • Dispose of all garbage properly and put away any remaining garbage.

Visitors to managed recreation sites in Medicine Bow and Routt National Forests must now comply with a forestry order that requires adequate food storage and garbage that might attract bears.
