Bear Straps have shown to be effective at deterring bears. The BSA Aspen Troop 201 A help make hundreds of strap sets each year, however at peak season of bear activity we find that we run out of straps. For this reason we will be having strap making parties to fill the demand. These parties will be held at local restaurants and breweries in the Valley, and lunch will be provided for volunteer strap makers and packers. If you would like to help out, then fill out our form and we will inform you about the next one!
