This year Wyomingites celebrated their first Wyoming Public Lands day! The Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s Cody Field Office curated a Wyoming Public Lands Day Event, at a unique parcel of public land commonly known as Beartooth Ranch or sometimes “the drug ranch.” The Beartooth Ranch harbors pristine wildlife habitat and access to blue-ribbon fishing.
As grizzly bears continue to thrive across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, Greater Yellowstone Coalition works towards solutions to keep bears alive and people safe. This includes bear-proofing campgrounds throughout Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho.

As grizzly bears disperse across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem during the summer, it’s important to host bear safety refreshers throughout the ecosystem. The Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s Idaho field office teamed up with Idaho Fish and Game, Mountain Bike the Tetons, and Teton Valley Trails and Pathways to bring the mechanical bear “Charger” back to Teton Valley.
If you’re reading this blog, you likely have a love for the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. In honor of Earth Day and Week, here are a few tips for all of us to help preserve the lands, waters, and wildlife of Greater Yellowstone for future generations. Thank you for all that you do for the wild heart of North America!
The Idaho Sportsmen Show attracts thousands of guides, outfitters, and sportsmen of all kinds from across the Pacific Northwest to the Expo Idaho center in Boise each year. Among this year’s crowds, demos, and displays, you could find GYC and Idaho Fish and Game teaming up to bring a fun and educational experience to event attendees: the Idaho Fish and Game bear education trailer and the United State Forest Service’s mechanical bear – the Charger!
Every summer, Teton Valley Trails and Pathways hosts the WYDAHO Rendezvous Teton Bike Festival, an annual fundraising event that brings hundreds of mountain bikers to Teton Valley. We thought this would be a great opportunity to provide our mountain biking friends with a fun and educational experience that not only protects them, but also our local grizzly bears: The mechanical charging bear we call the Charger!
