Bears have recently been spotted at Riverview. Please ensure that you use caution while on the property.

The BC Conservation Foundation reminds us that the best encounter with a bear is no encounter.

To reduce your chances of a bear encounter:

  • Make noise and talk loudly as you walk
  • Do not wear headphones
  • Avoid secluded or isolated areas

If you do encounter a bear:

  • Remain calm. Face the bear, without making eye contact, and slowly back away
  • Avoid running or sudden movements

Safety tips

  • Keep young children close to you at all times
  • Keep your pets on a leash at all times
  • Never approach or feed a bear

The BC Conservation Office Service (COS) handles all issues regarding bears. To report any issues you may encounter please contact BC COS at 1-877-952-7277.
