Bear Safety Reminder<div class="ExternalClass90163E0C34EC48CA9A147218DF935DFD"><p>Bears are now active and their movements are often dictated by food supplies.

If you <em>encounter </em>a bear, stay calm and slowly back away.</p><p>Negative bear-human interactions may result in closure of some areas of the park.</p></div>True
