NPS: “Bears are still active in all Valley Campgrounds. Car break-ins have slowed down, with the only break-in this week occurring in Lower Pines campground. The easiest way to prevent a bear getting your food while camping is to have your food stored. Treat your food locker like a refrigerator and close it after each use. Keep food you are preparing within arm’s reach. Cooking meals before dark can also decrease your probability of having a bear incident. Many, but not all incidents occur after dark when bears blend in with the night and your food is in the shadows.
Bears have also been active in Curry Village, entering unoccupied tent cabins with food stored in them. Please remove all food from your cabin and store it in food storage lockers.
The acorns are dropping and we are seeing many bears eating those that have fallen and climbing the trees to get them before they drop.”
