*We are having issues with bears in the community.

Some tips on how to keep the bears away.

· Don’t place your garbage outside unsecured

· Do not leave pet food, bird seed, and/or garbage outside.

· Do not leave food outside for any wildlife.

· Clean your barbeque grill after use and never dump the grease outside.

Eliminating the feeding source will help detract bears! Black bears will consume almost anything.
