Stay safe this May long weekend

The Conservation Officer Service would like to send a friendly reminder to be responsible and stay safe while recreating outdoors this long weekend. Whether you are boating, riding, hiking, or camping, plan ahead and bring the appropriate safety equipment.

Now that spring is in full swing, bears are active and it is important to manage food and other attractants by locking them in bear proof containers or keeping attractants out of reach from wildlife.

Campfires need to be monitored at all times and ensure all fires are put out completely before leaving. If you witness any poaching, polluting, or other environmental violations taking place please give the Report All Poachers & Polluters (RAPP) number a call at 1-877-952-7277.
