Bear Necessities: Electric Fence Workshop @ Revelstoke Rec Centre
May 25 @ 7:00 pm

The new Bear Necessities Workshop Series continues with its second spring workshop:

Electric Fence Workshop
with Gillian Sanders
Revelstoke Rec Centre Macpherson Room
7:00pm

Get ready for the summer season and protect your fruit and nut trees, chickens and beehives from bears, in turn you’ll also be protecting bears against habituation.

Workshop leader Gillian Sanders has helped to install 150 electric fences to successfully protect livestock and/or fruit trees from both black and grizzly bears. Correctly installed and maintained electric fencing provides a cost effective and easy solution to prevent or stop bear conflicts. This workshop will discuss different electric fencing designs for permanent and temporary fences that can be adapted to your particular needs.

The workshop will begin indoors for an overview of the different types of electric fences and the best solutions for us in Revelstoke. Then we will venture outdoors for a demonstration on how easy it is to set up an electric fence yourself!

Help keep bears wild and our community safe. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Workshops are $10 suggested donation or free for Revelstoke Bear Aware members.

Jeff Colvin, Careers and Work Experience Coordinator at Revelstoke Secondary School, will be introducing RSS’s work experience program and explaining what that could mean for your small business. Get the details on how the co-op program works, what you need to qualify, and what you can expect from a work experience student. We also welcome folks who’ve had work experience students share their stories!

It’s a great way for students interested in tech jobs to dip their toes into the working world and you’ll get a bunch of help.
