Did You Know?

Black bear on tree trunk.

Picnic areas are a major source of problem bears. Bears quickly lose their fear of humans when allowed access to our food. They wind up dead, hit by cars or shot because they threaten people. Store all food immediately on arrival, stay close to food at tables, and put all trash in bearproof cans!
