Colorado investing $1 million to reduce human-bear conflict
Grants will go to small community projects across the state
Colorado Parks and wildlife is investing $1 million to help reduce conflict between black bears (Ursus americanus) and humans. Grants will go to various community projects, including public education programs and improving dumpster design to keep bears out of trash. The funding comes after a similar investment last year. The money comes mostly from the sale of state park passes, hunting and fishing licenses and federal grants.
