Be Bear Aware!!!

We have reports of bear activity in our community due to unsecured trash, pet food on a deck and treats that were stored in a vehicle.  Bears have a keen sense of smell!  Any food items can be an invitation to attacking you and damaging your home or vehicle!  Always be Bear Aware in the Sierra.  They are very Agile!

Bears and critters can make a mess!  Install a metal locking Bear Safe!

Everyone Needs to Help Remove Pet Waste

It seems that a constant problem in our community is animal waste left on properties. It smells, attracts flies and  is just not healthy.  It just makes scents!

Feral Cats, Dogs, Bears and Raccoons are the culprits and also owners who don’t pick up their pet’s waste.

Please carry plastic bags and clean up the waste when you walk your pet.  Owners also need to remove waste along the roadway in front of your property.

Either dig a hole and bury it or bag it and drag it to your garbage can.

We hope everyone will help with this on going situation.  THANK YOU!
