Wed, 04/12/2017 - 09:04

Wednesday April 12.  Grizzly bear sightings have been reported on Fairy Creek trail earlier this week.  Balck bear sightings reported on Canyon Trail and Alpine trail.

Be prepared and expect to encounter wildlife anytime.  Make noise to warn bears of your presence and avoid surprise encounters.  If you encounter a bear and the bear has seen you, keep calm, identify yourself as human using your voice, back away slowly and leave the bear an escape route.

WildSafeBC local program activities are scheduled to resume early May.
