Be Bear Aware

By Village of Valemount

Bears are out and have been spotted on several occasions within the community. Everyone can do their part to reduce bear attractants on their properties.

  • Store garbage indoors or in a bear-resistant enclosure.
  • Manage fruit trees so that fruit is picked as it ripens and no windfall accumulates.
  • Keep BBQs clean and odour free.  

Please DO NOT put your garbage out before the morning of garbage collection. Garbage receptacles left out prior to garbage collection day may be subject to bylaw enforcement measures.

Please call the RAPP hotline 24/7 at 1-877-952-7277 if a bear poses a threat or danger to public safety.
