Reports of several bear sightings throughout the trail system, as well as at Hersey Lake Beach and Gillies Lake Beach have been received by the MRCA. We remind residents to be cautious when in these areas.
- Make plenty of noise and travel in groups
- Be aware of your surroundings, look and listen for bears and their signs
- Keep pets on a leash
The MNRF Bearwise Program provides information on how to prevent and report encounters with black bears.
