  • Bear Warning - Crow Lake PP

      August 6, 2020

      Bears have been reported and spotted over the past week in various areas of Crow Lake Provincial Park. 

      With various berry plants starting to produce fruit, park visitors are asked to be extra vigilant about bear safety while hiking, recreating and camping in bear country.  Avoid areas with berry bushes, strictly follow all preventative practices when in bear country. Bear Smart

      Remember, bears depend on the berry crop to gain enough weight to survive the winter; please respect their need to feed themselves and their young.  Should you come across any wildlife closures, please follow the directions; never cross into closed areas.

    Although an advisory is in place for this area, bears can be encountered anywhere in the Northeast Region at any time. To avoid a surprise encounter with a bear:

    • Make plenty of noise and travel in groups.
    • Be aware of your surroundings. Look and listen for bears and their signs.
    • Keep your pet on a leash.
    • Carry bear spray. Make sure it’s easily accessible, and know how to use bear spray.
