Bears Will Be Waking Up Soon – Are You Ready?

Spring is nearly here! That means we’ll soon see longer days and the fresh blooms of early-season plants and flowers. It also means that we’ll be seeing bears. At this time of year, bears will be waking up from hibernation and will be in search of food. As green leaves and ripe berries are in short supply, they’ll be looking to other sources for their meals.That’s why it’s so important to be ready when you live in bear country. Follow these important tips to help avoid dangerous interactions with bears this spring and throughout the coming year.

Avoid bear conflicts

Bears can be very common in many areas of North America. If you live in a community that is home to bears, then it’s important to understand the do’s and don’ts of avoiding conflicts with bears:

  • Don’t feed bears or leave pet food or bird food outside.
  • Don’t add meat or sweet foods to your compost pile.
  • Do clean and store outdoor grills when not in use.
  • Do pick ripe garden produce as soon as possible.
  • Don’t run if you see a bear.
  • Do make your presence known if you see a bear by waving your arms and making noise.
  • Do report bear sightings.
  • Do store garbage and recycling in bear-proof cans and dumpsters.
