Living with Bears in the MRV

Black bears (Urus americanus) are the only species of bear found in the Eastern United States and a healthy population makes its home in our community, That’s a good thing, but we all need to know how to live with our neighbors safely and that is where the Mad River Valley Bear Ininitative comes in. The goal of this group of community-minded organizations and individuals  is to help MRV residents and visitors learn about this iconic species that we share our Valley with. They believe that by learning about the lives of black bears, you will enhance your enjoyment of this fascinating species and help minimize any conflicts that could occur. We all share responsibility in keeping our bears safe!
