Please do your part to protect yourself, park wildlife and other visitors by properly securing your food.
In many areas, a bear canister is the only good way of securing food.
Bear canisters are required in some areas of the park's wilderness backcountry.
Many people, after using a bear canister for the first time, never go back to hanging food because of the convenience and other benefits of using bear canisters.
