Bear Aware Reaps Benefits Of Apple Exchange

The Northern Bear Aware Society is sending a huge shout-out to the residents of Prince George. Because of their generosity in bringing apples to the Northern Lights Estate Winery, the Society has received a cheque for nearly $4,000. That’s nearly twice the Society’s annual budget.
“Basic operating expenses for at least two years now,” said Dave Bakker with the Northern Bear Aware Society. “But also we can continue with our education program, which we believe is the strongest thing we can contribute to.”
The money was raised through donations from the winery. They would contribute 50 cents per pound to the Society. In total this year, 9,000 pounds of apples were collected. That’s more than double the amount collected in the first year of the program.
