Did you know that NH is home to ~5000 black bears? The forest is their home and we as guest should keep a few things in mind: • Coolers, food scraps, garbage and backpacks left unattended are snack invitations to a hungry black bear. • Normally shy and afraid of humans, bears lose this sense as they become accustomed to even the smallest remnant of food. • Even empty food wrappers are enticing to a hungry bear. • Sadly, this can become a dangerous situation for them as they look for food freebies and as a result become repeat offenders due to our negligence. • Remember: “A fed bear is a dead bear.” Yup… if a bear becomes a repeat offender due to our negligence, it will likely be trapped and killed by Fish & Game. • But! That won’t happen if you follow these rules and help keep wild bears wild: - Store food properly in closed/locked vehicles, bear containers or bear boxes (like this photo.) - Keep a clean campsite to ensure bears and other animals don’t forage for your food. - Put coolers and food containers in your vehicle when you finish your meal. - Place trash in the bear proof dumpsters.

The white mountains are an amazing place, despite the insane amount of bugs we encountered today
