Reducing bear attractants as a community
November 7, 2019
With Community Waste Solutions’ new manager getting their act together, with hainescompost.com in this town, with the bear news stories not being full of reports from local gardeners and composters, there are clearly ways and means to get our bear attractants way, way, way down. Hooray for the Starvin’ Marvin School Garden Program, please continue to teach the children well! Some of us older people with our useless dumpsters and trash sheds seem so unable to change our bad habits, but it’s time. A warming climate and anything else that’s off kilter environmentally affects all of us in all kinds of ways, ways we can’t even imagine right now. My dog and I had a wonderful semi-close encounter with a bear up near the Major Road saw mills on August 17, I wouldn’t change that experience for the world.
