Berry season is here and those delectable fruits are enjoyed by people and wildlife alike, especially BEARS!

Be safe while picking berries

  • Carry bear spray and know how to use it
  • Watch for signs that bears have been in the area: tracks, scat, diggings and carcasses are some examples
  • Be aware of your surroundings as you pick
  • Make noise: bear bells, conversation and singing are some ideas to alert the bears that you are also in the area
  • In the early morning and late evening bears are more active and likely to be sharing your favorite berry patch

Enjoy the berries and stay safe.
