Remember! If you see a bear, remain calm. Often bears will move on if they do not find anything to eat, or if they climb a tree, will come down once things quiet down. Note that Grizzly Bear are rarely seen in the south Okanagan. Keep away from the bear and bring children and pets inside.

Note: If a bear is threatening, persistent or aggressive, call the Conservation Officer Service RAPP line
1-877-952-RAPP (7277) or Telus mobility cell #7277.
