The Seward Phoenix Log - News of the Eastern Kenai Peninsula since 1966

Bear safety class set for May 12


The Kenai Fjords National Park and the Seward Ranger District of the Chugach National Forest will be presenting a hands-on bear safety class for area residents on May 12. The class, which will include training on the proper usage of bear spray, will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the K.M. Rae Building.

During the presentation, locals will be able to learn how to react in a bear encounter, and become familiar with using bear spray.

Also, attendees will watch a video, a slideshow of bears, and then go outside to practice with the inert bear spray.

Rangers are recommending that individuals attending the class bring a pack with the exterior pocket that bear spray could be kept, or, at a minimum, a belt to attach the bear spray holster.
