The Fernie Rod and Gun Club has invited senior wildlife biologist, Garth Mowat, to give a Grizzly Bear presentation at the club’s monthly meeting at the Elks Hall in Fernie on Monday at 7:30 p.m.

Topics in the presentation will include past, present and future Grizzly Bear management, population estimates, recent studies, hunting opportunities and a Kootenay Grizzly Bear committee review.

The entire Kootenay region is included in the presentation but the main focus will be the Southern Rockies and Flathead Grizzly Bear Management areas, which include all of the Elk Valley, Flathead and Bull River areas.

There will be detailed data on Grizzly Bear management and studies from the last four years including the population estimates for the Flathead and Elk Valley.

There will also be some time to discuss some recent studies done on elk, moose, deer and sheep populations, harvest data and future management plans on these animals.
