With many fruit trees ripening at this time, bears and other wildlife sightings are now a regular occurrence in and around the Village. A reminder for all of us to do our part in keeping our community safe by removing attractants (things animals like to eat) from yards, for instance:

  • Do not store garbage outdoors
  • Pick up fallen fruit
  • Remove bird feeders or at least keep the area under the feeder clean and reduce the amount of seed you put out at a time
  • Do not feed pets outdoors
  • Keep barbecues clean
