Abstract In 2011, two fatalities were caused by grizzly bears in Yellowstone National Park (YNP); the first bear-caused fatalities to occur within park boundaries in 25 years. As a result of these events, park managers are reviewing the effectiveness of bear safety messaging and its message delivery media to backcountry visitors. USGS social scientists and a NPS bear management biologist will use their combined expertise to conduct a social survey of backcountry visitors to YNP to help park managers achieve this review. The survey will identify the effectiveness of various bear safety information and education messages; the results will be used to direct future bear safety information and education efforts in YNP. No such prior analysis has been conducted in YNP. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1028–NEW. Title: Evaluating the effectiveness of Yellowstone National Park bear safety information.
