Canmore Bear Warning


A bear warning has been placed for the Larch Islands, in the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park. Bears, including one grizzly bear with an ear tag transmitter, are travelling to and from the islands to feed on ripe berries in the area. The ripe berries will continue to attract bears to the area.

Berry Season is here!

Bears could be encountered anytime, anywhere. All users need to make plenty of noise, and be observant. Be especially vigilant when travelling through areas where ripe berries are present. Dogs, as always, must be kept on leash. Carrying bear spray is strongly recommended, not only here, but any time you venture out in to bear habitat. Using trails with good, open sight lines is preferred.

Conservation Officers will be monitoring daily. The warning will remain in place until further notice.
