Living with Bears

Welcome to the Tahoe Council For Wild Bears, dedicated to keeping bears alive and wild.

It is the mission of the Tahoe Council for Wild Bears to develop and implement a bear education and conservation program through a collaborative effort that includes residents, property owners, visitors, government agencies, private non-profit organizations and the local business community. Our goal is to create an environment in the Lake Tahoe Basin that promotes the coexistence of humans and bears and reduces bear/human conflicts.
