Bear Safety Reminder<div class="ExternalClassDD42CC6C26274F7E8FFE0306CEBBBA84"><p>​Bears are now active. Wild and unpredictable, bears can run faster than humans over any type of ground. If you <em>see </em>a bear, stay back 100 metres. Bears that become comfortable near people and vehicles, can be more dangerous to humans or may be destroyed or struck by cars. To keep bears wild and visitors safe:<br>• Never approach a bear<br>• Change your route or plans to avoid bears </p><p>If you <em>encounter </em>a bear, stay calm and slowly back away. If you <em>encounter </em>a bear along Oliver Road, be prepared to retrace your route if on foot or bicycle; remain in your vehicle if driving. </p><p>Negative bear-human interactions may result in closure of some areas of the park.</p></div>True
