Be Bear Aware

Please be advised that there have been several sightings of bears in the area recently. Warning signs have been posted near the traffic circle at the entrance to Discovery Ridge.

Our special community has us living in partnership with local wildlife. In order to protect our neighbourhood, our residents, and the wildlife, please ensure you are doing your part. If possible, put your blue and green bins out for pickup on Wednesday morning instead of Tuesday evening to help reduce bear attractants until the bears go into hibernation.

For more information on how to live with and enjoy Calgary’s wildlife, see:

Screenagers Screening

Calling all parents of tweens and teens in Ward 6! Wests Springs Cougar Ridge Community Association is hosting an in-person screening of Screenagers Next Chapter: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience on May 26, 2022 at West Springs Church, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.

This film is in follow-up to the award-winning documentary Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a film that probed into the vulnerable corners of family life and depicted the messy struggles over social media, video games and academics. We believe this film, and the discussion afterwards, will help our youth and their parents build crucial skills for navigating stress, anxiety, and depression.

Hope you can make it!

Register at https://wscr.ca/. Registration open to all Ward 6 residents!
