This record number of visitors has created significant parking challenges, and it is recommended that people going to the area have a Plan B. If the parking lot is full, consider visiting another area of Kananaskis Country or, if you can, come back during the week when fewer people are around.
Funds from the new Kananaskis Conservation Pass are supporting additional boots on the ground and enforcement officers will be out again this weekend working with traffic safety to ensure people are aware of the rules. Additionally, officers will be responding to issues and supporting trail maintenance, waste management, search and rescue operations, visitor services and the upkeep of facilities.
Albertans are also reminded that bear activity is currently high, and encounters between bears and people may have unfortunate consequences for both the bears and people involved. Anyone planning to explore bear country is reminded to take precautions.
Residents should remove and store garbage and other wildlife attractants, like fruit trees, from their properties.
