This has been a big topic in the news around here lately. Saying, “Don't feed the bears” has almost become a cliché in our culture, but it's based in fact, and the consequences of giving human food to wild bears can be tragic.

Lumberjacks Are Coming Back!

Posted on April 17, 2018

They were ways of life that were necessary to survival in the mountains in the 18th and 19th centuries.
