You might assume that bears live only in forests or mountains, however, black bears inhabit much of Dinosaur National Monument. Black bears (Ursus americanus) are curious, highly mobile, and adaptable, but they're not always black. Their fur can be black or brown and range from light to dark.
If you see a bear in the monument or have an incident with a bear, please report to monument staff immediately at (970) 374-3000.
