Bear Activity Summary: 
Bears have been very active in wilderness areas over the last few weeks and are being seen regularly along the Half Dome corridor and in Little Yosemite Valley. This past week, bear obtained food from the Little Yosemite Campground. A bear also ate freeze dried food that campers left out in the Illilouette Creek area. This week, several bear incidents occurred at the Snow Creek Area which now has an overnight camping closure in effect. When camping in Yosemite’s wilderness, always store all food, trash, and scented items in a properly secured bear resistant food storage container. To find a list of containers that are allowed for use in Yosemite, please visit www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/containers.htm. This list is updated any time that there are changes to the list of allowed containers.

Fascinating Bear Fact:
