When traveling through Stewart and Hyder, please be aware that there is wildlife all around us. Here are a few tips to keep yourself and the wildlife safe. Please respect all bears and their space – they can be dangerous.
For more information, watch this Staying Safe in Bear Country video.
Take the time to learn about bears for your safety and how to avoid encounters. Please visit the following links:

For safety reasons, DO NOT leave garbage or non-bear proof garbage cans outside.
We do ask that you use the garbage bins at your camp site, or one of our many community garbage bins to dispose of your garbage. Garbage, organics and recycling left outside allow bears to become habituated to humans and associate a food reward with human activity, which can lead to more conflicts.
Help keep our community safe!
Here is a map of the locations of our community bins and the main dumpster:
