(Anchorage) - Representative Charisse Millett, R-Anchorage, will hold her final Bear Awareness event of the summer this Thursday at M.E. Sullivan Park next to Westchester Lagoon.
The Coastal Trail is one of the city's most popular recreational sites but trail users can also find themselves sharing the trail with a bruin without warning. That is why it is so important that hikers, bikers, walkers and skiers carry with them the knowledge that can prevent a tragedy from occurring.
Officials from the Anchorage Police Department, the Alaska State Troopers, the Alaska Center for the Environment, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and Alaska Waste will be on hand with expert advice.
