ANARCHIST MOUNTAIN BEAR NEWS

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 bearaware@amcsbc.ca

Bear Resistant Trash Carts Delivery

BEAR ALERT!

Not all bears go to den in the winter in the Okanagan or North Shore; its mostly male bears that hang out later or don’t den for as long. On Anarchist Mountain, they are still out and have even been seen this week.

Garbage should STILL be left inside a safe secure lock up until the morning of pick-up – ALL YEAR ROUND; or be in bear-resistant containment. 

Other critters that do not hibernate or den can become issues in the winter – coyotes, Raccoons, crows, ravens, even cougars or the neighbour’s dog.

Also, bears love pumpkins… so time to get them off the porch if they are still out.

BEAR-RESISTANT GARBAGE CARTS WILL BE HERE SOON!

The community purchase program for Anarchist Mountain garbage carts has been a great success!  Over 70 carts were purchased, with some purchases coming from West Bench (in Penticton) after they heard about our program.

These sturdy, 65 gallon Rollins garbage carts have been tested to be bear-resistant and are recommended by WildSafe BC and meet the standards set out by RDOS.  If you were or became an Anarchist Mountain Community Society member, you also received a $15 discount to cover your shipping!  We should be receiving 60 carts the week ending Nov 28 and the rest mid December. We will contact each person who ordered one to arrange for pickup, with Anarchist Mountain Residents being the first to receive them.

With the new Covid-19 restrictions put into place last week, we will have to make arrangements to observe the social distancing rules and masks will be mandatory.

If there is interest in the Spring, another purchase program may be available – send us your feedback!

Three draw prizes were donated by local vendors for those that purchased from Anarchist Mountain.  

Congratulations to:

Helga Kramer – Winner of the Epicure Cookie Kit (donated by Brenda Arychuk/ Epicure)

Alena Bajkov – Winner of the Thirty-one Essential Tote (donated by Nancy Forster/ Thirty-One)

Bill Seres – Winner of the Norwex Window Cloth (donated by Cindy Relkie)/ Norwex)

A resident of Anarchist Mountain found that Telus had starting the process of installing a FibreOptic network in the area and when they contacted Telus, this is the response they received.

Currently we are still working on getting PureFibre connected to your area. If you want to be informed once PureFibre is available you may fill out this form fibre.telus.com/iwantfibre/ . If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
