Bear activity on the rise

View Eagle County's Wildlife Protection Ordinance

Recent drought conditions have resulted in a sharp increase in bear activity in Eagle County. To help prevent conflicts with bears at your home or business this fall, use these tips:

  • Never store garbage or pet food on porches.
  • Keep barbeque grills and outdoor furniture clean.
  • Keep bird feeders out of reach of wildlife and bring them in at night.
  • Keep ground-floor windows and doors closed and locked.
