Island Park is Bear Country

Three Island Park community groups are working together to raise awareness that Island Park is Grizzly and Black bear country.

The groups have obtained grants from the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee and the Greater Yellowstone Coalition to help fund a variety of outreach and bear safety activities. The three groups are the Henrys Fork Wildlife Alliance, Involved Property Owners of Island Park and Bear Aware Island Park.

The goal is to promote awareness and bear-safe practices among as many as possible of the thousands of people who live, visit, or recreate in the Island Park area.
