Beware of Bears

Bear activity in our community is starting to pick up. Bears find it easier to get calories from trash cans than foraging in the wild, so please be careful with your garbage.

For a bear-free neighborhood, remember these tips:
  • Do not leave trash or trash cans outside overnight
  • Properly store pet food and bird seed
  • Burn food off of barbecue grills and clean after use
  • Keep all bear-accessible windows and doors closed and locked, including home, garage and vehicle doors
  • Don't leave food, trash, coolers, air fresheners or anything that smells in your vehicle
  • Pick fruit before it ripens, and clean up fallen fruit
