Mesa Verde National Park has seen an increase of encounters between bears and humans this summer, and Bear Smart Durango is recruiting volunteers to help. Volunteers will monitor campsites and educate campers on bear smart camping practices. Volunteers will be rewarded with prizes including free entrance to the park, free camping, special tour vouchers and ride-alongs with biologists.

To help, contact Karen Hickerson with Bear Smart Durango at 970-769-4215 or bear.smart.karen@gmail.com.
