Report Wildlife Encounters
Store all scented items, including food, garbage or toiletries, inside these bear-proof containers. Improperly stored items may lead to property damage and/or possible human injury. Do not leave food or trash inside the bear-proof container when departing.
Keep clothes, sleeping bags and tents as odor free as possible, do not cook or take food inside your tent. Clean up thoroughly after each meal and never burn food scraps in your campfire.
For your safety, and that of other wilderness users, do not feed, touch or approach any bear.
Africanized Honey Bees
If attacked by bees:
Cover Your Head! Africanized honey bees target the eyes, ears, nose and mouth when attacking. Use your shirt or jacket to cover your head while running away. Keep the hole you are looking out of as small as possible, without impairing your vision.
Do Not Kill Attacking Bees! If you kill an attacking bee, it will release an alarm scent that will attract other bees from the colony.
Do Not Flail Your Arms! Flailing your arms or swatting at bees will only make the attack worse.
Seek Medical Attention! If you are attacked by Africanized honey bees, call 911 and seek medical attention immediately.
Scream Loudly! Make sure the mountain lion knows you are a human. Scream loudly.
Back Away Slowly... Do not turn your back on the animal. Back away slowly, and do not run. If you turn and run, instinct may trigger the animal to chase after you and attack.
