Bear Education

Bear Facts:

  • Snowmass Village is in prime black bear habitat.
  • Bears live in the aspen zone where we build our homes.
  • Natural food sources for bears are not at 11,000 feet, they are in the aspen understory..
  • Human-bear conflicts will increase when we leave food sources outside our homes.
  • Birdfeeders are a potent black bear attractant and draw bears to the windows of your home.
