Living with Bears in Marin

Living with Bears in Marin

Sightings of black bears have been increasing in Marin County, and many community members have questions about living with bears. Recently, we ventured into the world of black bears in Marin and beyond during a very informative webinar that we hosted along with partners from CA State Parks, CA Department of Fish & Wildlife, and North Bay Bear Collaborative. We learned about bears in Marin’s public lands, ongoing conservation initiatives aimed at documenting the black bear population in the North Bay, practical tips for coexisting with these amazing animals, and how we can contribute to a bear-friendly culture in Marin.
