Learn about co-existing with bears in the Yampa Valley before our free screening of Grizzly 399. A talk & film.

Keep Bears Wild wants to establish a sustainable and effective bear awareness in our community through education and marketing, volunteers, and events that help reduce conflict between humans and bears. Join us for an interactive hour of facts, tips and action items that will help make life safer and better for bears and humans alike in the Yampa Valley.


Grizzly 399

Join us after the talk at 7 p.m. for a free community screening of Grizzly 399: Queen of the Tetons. Grizzly 399, the most famous bear in Grand Teton National Park, has an exceptional litter of four cubs to raise. Every day, the family must contend with threats to their survival, including a warming climate and human encroachment in bear country. Now the stakes are higher than ever as Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana seek to remove grizzlies from the endangered species list—which would make it legal to hunt them. In a riveting story full of twists and turns, hope and heartbreak, Grizzly 399 stands as a symbol of the clash between humans and the wild.
