Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC)

The IGBC is the most comprehensive source of reliable information on being bear aware and provides links to regulatory practices across several management agencies in the following states:

Idaho

Montana

Washington

Wyoming

Alberta

British Columbia

US National Park Service

US Forrest Service

American Grizzly Bear Range

Black Bears

While the IGBC website covers information about bears in general (both Grizzly and Black bears) the regional information provided covers only the Grizzly Bear Range. For specific regional black bear information it is best to contact the website of the location you intend to visit or contact the ranger office directly. Each Park, National Forest, or Management Area typically will have a web page with bear information for their region.
