Be Bear Aware


We greatly appreciate the financial support and the participation of state, federal and provincial wildlife and land management agencies, youth groups, conservation organizations, hunting, and fishing associations, the graphic arts, printing, pulp, and paper industries, and literally hundreds of teachers, youth group leaders and thousands of their students and members.

We greatly appreciate the participation of the following photographers: Chuck Bartlebaugh, Tom & Pat Leeson, Bruce Taubert and Drew Wilson. 

Join with Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf and this national campaign to inform and educate the next generation on how to safely and responsibly enjoy our wildlife treasures so we can preserve wildlife long into the future.
