Heading to Incline Village? Please be Bear Smart!

The sun is shining and the lake is crystal clear and full! It's a great time to enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe

With that, bear activity is up this year in Incline Village for many reasons. Improper trash containment and outdoor attractants have played a significant role.

If you are heading to Tahoe this summer (or are already here) please read below on how to properly secure your trash. The bears are a magical piece of our mountains but they need to work for their food in the forest, not in our trash. Easy access to our garbage will put them in a dangerous situation. A fed bear really is a dead bear in Nevada.

PLEASE....

Secure ALL trash in a bear-proof container (even around town)

If you are renting, please ask your homeowner how to securely store all refuse until garbage day

Remove ALL food from cars. Keep windows and doors locked.

Keep home windows and doors locked.

Remove all outdoor attractants - dirty grills, unsecured garbage, pet food, etc

Please do your part to keep our wildlife safe. We look forward to seeing you in our magical community soon!

Good advice - thanks for sharing,.

You may want to post in the California forum (if you have not already) as lots of questions about Lake Tahoe get asked there.

There are lots of condo's and rental cabins in Incline, good advice for those not familiar with bears. Hope they see this.

They are very strict where we stay, always good to remind those coming for the summer.
