The Pend Oreille County Master Gardeners are offering a free, live, internet class called “Bear Aware”, on Thursday, May 21st, from 6:30pm-8:00pm. The class will be taught by County Extension Director, Mike Jensen, who will provide information and educational resources so a person can safely and responsibly enjoy bears in the wild. If a close encounter should occur, the goal is to educate you on the best way to handle the situation and minimize the bear encounter risk.
Anyone with a computer or smart phone and internet access will be able to enjoy this free class by calling or emailing the Extension Office to register. Those who are registered will receive an email a day before the class, with a live Zoom link and directions on how to access the presentation.
The internet class will be interactive so participants will be able to make comments and ask questions. Even if participants do not have a camera and microphone on their computers, they can view the class and ask questions by typing them into a chat box. There will be no in-person attendees.
