Bear Spray Demonstration and Safety Tips

Do you carry bear spray out hiking in bear country? Our Yellowstone Forever Institute Senior Naturalist, Brad Bulin, recently talked with us about why bear spray is the most effective bear deterrent as well as when and how to use it.

Help Protect Yellowstone’s Bears

You can directly help protect Yellowstone’s bears by sponsoring a bear box. These boxes store human food securely so bears can’t access it.

With the help of generous supporters, Yellowstone Forever has already funded the installation of more than 330 bear boxes in the park. Yet more than 1,000 bear boxes are still needed to meet the park’s goal to provide a box in every campground site.
