Denis Thomson, the Chair of the Anarchist Mountain FireSmart Committee will be moving this month to Alberta, leaving big shoes to fill. The FireSmart Committee would like to express its gratitude to Denis for his leadership and dedicated efforts to bring FireSmart awareness, education and activities to the residents of Anarchist Mountain. His low-key and friendly approach made him impossible to underestimate and we have all benefited from his energy, thoughtfulness, and knowledge. We will miss him and wish him best in his future home.
Many of you are now happy owners of a brand new bear-resistant cart. Thank you once again for supporting this initiative and helping to protect our mountain’s wildlife. Because the carts’ secure clips need to be unfastened the morning of pick-up, some people asked if that defeated the purpose of having secure carts. WildSafe BC answers with a resounding NO. Bears are most active in the evening and overnight. If the cart is unclipped the morning of pick-up, the exposure to bears is minimized substantially. In communities across BC and other areas, this has proven to be the case. Locking carts most definitely help reduce the occurrence of bears breaking into garbage, and thus help reduce human/ bear encounters, and prevent the demise of nuisance bears. Bears are extremely smart. Once they’ve tried to access a locking cart and find they don’t succeed, they avoid such carts in the future.
In speaking with many of you over the past weeks we’ve learned that a vast majority of our residents already bring their garbage to the street the morning of pick up. This is FANTASTIC NEWS. Some of you have been doing this for a while, and some of you have changed your routines due to increased bear activity. We are extremely happy to hear this. The greater the percentage of our residents that follow best practices in terms of wildlife safety, the better our community lives in harmony with bears and other animals.
Please note that our name has officially changed to
ANARCHIST MOUNTAIN BEAR GROUP.
Our Facebook link is: https://www.facebook.com/anarchistmountainbeargroup . If you haven’t already, please check out our page, like us on Facebook and feel free to share with your friends. Here you’ll regularly find helpful tips as well as bear news from the mountain and around BC. You can also share bear sightings or other informative posts so we have a “go-to” space for everything bear-related on the mountain.
We would like to thank Urs Grob and the Anarchist Mountain Fire Department for allowing us to use the Fire Hall parking lot to stage a COVID-safe pick-up for the first shipment of bear-resistant carts. A total of 72 carts were purchased (40 by Anarchist Mountain residents and 32 by Electoral Area F residents who wanted to join us in this group purchase). Thank you to Zoe Kirk, Public Works Manager in charge of WildSafe BC for RDOS for her assitance in making this happen. Bringing the two communities together allowed us to obtain a very favourable price on the carts. There are a few carts yet to be delivered. We will be in touch soon with residents who have yet to receive theirs, regarding pick-up instructions. Each cart helps to protect humans, pets, property and bears. Thanks to all who participated.
If you’re interested in purchasing a bear-resistant cart but did not get in on the deal this time, please let us know. We have started a list in hopes of placing another order next Spring. Leave a message on our Facebook page, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
