Be ‘berry’ carefulPosted: July 24, 2012
Buffaloberries are ripening at lower elevations in Kootenay National Park. These berries are a critical food source for bears. Buffaloberry bushes are often found along the edges of trails, campgrounds and roadways. Bears can be very preoccupied while gorging on berries, increasing your chances of surprising a bear close to the trail.
If you are out there using the trails, we recommend that you travel in groups, make noise, and carry bear spray. Be especially alert for bear activity in areas with high concentrations of buffaloberries.
Seasonal trail restrictions are put into effect in key grizzly bear habitat to ensure visitor safety and reduce disturbances to female grizzly bears and offspring during the important feeding season. Check Important Bulletins for current warnings and closures before you head out.
