Be Bear Smart

Please remember that bears are out in search of food. The biggest attractant for bears in our community is garbage. Properly secure your garbage, and/or keep it indoors until pick-up, or until you can take it to the transfer station. Pick any fruit from your fruit trees or clean up fallen fruit from your yard. Everyone likes the smell of a barbecue, bears included! Please remember to properly clean your BBQ after using it.
