A bear rubbing against a tree may have an itchy back, but there’s more going on than meets the eye. Come hear about the messages being left by bears all over the forest, what they mean, and who they are for. You’ll also learn about how this interesting behaviour has the potential to provide valuable information on everything from population inventory and trend monitoring to understanding aspects of conflict management.
