The BC Ministry of Environment's Bear Smart Community Program encourages efforts to reduce bear-human conflicts.  Some things you can do to help to bear-proof your home:

  • keep garbage in the house or shed until pick up day
  • don't add meat or cooked food to your compost
  • pick ripe fruit and fallen fruit daily
  • use bird-feeders only in the winter
  • clean your BBQ after each use and store in a secure area
  • don't feed pets or store pet food outdoors
