Fresh bear scat consisting of mainly chokecherries. Notice the purplish color and the telltale round buckshot-sized seeds.

Join Bear Smart Durango on Saturday, October 3, from 10:00 – 11:45 a.m. in Perins Peak SWA for a hike in fall bear country with director Bryan Peterson. The hike is easy to moderate, but involves some bushwhacking thru oakbrush.
We will hopefully see sign of bears and attendees should leave with a better understanding of how black bears live in the wild. There will also be a brief talk and demonstration on using bear pepper spray.
Registration is required and space is limited. Long pants and Colorado Division of Wildlife habitat stamps are suggested. Members are free/$10 non-members. For complete information and directions, visit the blog at www.bearsmartdurango.org. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 749-4262 to reserve a spot.
