Bears & Attractants

According to WildSafeBC, garbage is the most reported attractant involved in human-bear conflicts. A reminder for residents to keep garbage secure until morning of collection, manage your fruit trees by picking fruit as it ripens or use an electric fence to protect fruit trees, feed pets indoors, and bring bird feeders inside from April to November. If you have questions about how to best manage your attractants, please reach out to the WildSafeBC Community Coordinator, Cora Skaien, at or at 778-987-3652.

If you require assistance with picking excess fruit from your backyard trees, please contact Audray Wright at Harvest Share: 1-250-814-9025 or email
