It’s now even easier for Elk Valley residents to be bear aware.
The new Elk Valley Bear Aware blog www.elkvalleybearaware.wordpress.com will allow residents to easily share information about bear sightings near their home and on trails.
Followers of the linked Elk Valley Bear Aware Facebook page and @Evbearaware Twitter feed, will receive automatic alerts whenever a sighting is reported.
The blog features facts about bears and useful information about bear-proofing your home and what to do if you encounter a bear.
You can also see photos of local bears and submit your own shots.
