Bears

Be Bear Wise: Admire them, Respect them, but please, Don't Feed Them! 

What You Can Do

  • Put garbage out on the morning of garbage day, and not the night before
  • Do not leave pet food outdoors
  • Thoroughly clean outdoor grills after use
  • Fill bird feeders only through the winter months
  • Do not put meat, fish or sweet food (including fruit) in your composter
  • Keep meat scraps in the freezer until garbage pick-up day
  • Pick all ripe fruit off trees, and remove vegetables and fallen fruit from the ground
  • Use electric fencing to protect valuable trees, orchards, vegetable and berry patches
