Bear Safety Reminders
Official News Release Download 
  
It’s that time of year again – the bears are emerging from hibernation, and we anticipate an increase in bear sightings. 

Limiting human contact with bears is very important. Minimizing the bears’ ready access to human food or garbage will help to ensure they do not become “food conditioned” to these sources. It is the bears’ quest for human food that may result in injury or damage to property.
