Roaring Fork Valley Bear Coalition, a 501(c)(3) proactive volunteer-based non-profit, is dedicated to reducing human-bear conflicts over a 50-mile corridor. Our citizen groups respond to community needs by reducing attractants, educating residents, and working alongside stakeholders: CPW, municipalities & trash-haulers to achieve common community goals, enforcement and actions that protect black bears. Join us, rally your communities, become solution-based!

Scoutmaster Michael Bair has been instrumental in creating awareness in many aspects of Roaring Fork Bears, Michael is 6th generation in the Roaring Fork Valley and longtime outdoor enthusiast and is conservation minded. His understanding and commitment to the valley are great assets to our bear group. To date with Michael’s leadership we have retro-fitted hundreds of cans into bear resistant ones for communities in mobile homes and residents in the Roaring Fork Valley.”
