The bears are back! Bring in your birdfeeders, secure garbage and compost, and keep your grills clean to prevent negative bear-human interactions.
Watch Ben Kilham’s full presentation on living with bears, thanks to our local Community Access TV crew. Find out more about Ben’s work at kilhambearcenter.org.
We’re disappointed to postpone our trips until we can safely get together again. Look for a new self-guided Hike of the Month in our May e-news.
If you’re headed out, please remember:
- Enjoy your companions from a distance
- Leash your dog – uncontrolled dog meetups can make things unsafe for their owners too
- If a trailhead parking is full when you arrive, have a Plan B for a trail less traveled
- Leave higher elevation and muddy trails until they’ve dried out
- The Appalachian Trail is closed for now
