The MCMWTC has abundant wildlife in our surrounding area that very active year around. 



Please conduct the following activities daily:

1)      Secure your work space dumpsters outside with the chain that is on the dumpster lid.

2)      Secure your outside work areas. All areas should be void of trash and food debris.

3)      Do not leave food or hygiene items in your POV or a Government vehicle.

4)      Ensure that all work spaces are secure at the end of the business day. Lock and secure all windows and doors before leaving.

5)      Secure all outside trash cans at the PX, TQ and LBC.

6)      Secure all BBQ grills or other outdoor cooking appliances

7)      Secure the grease trap at the chow hall and the Pickel Chalet.

If we do all of these things we will discourage bears and other wildlife from foraging in our areas. If we do not do these things the bears and other wildlife will cause damage to government facilities, vehicles and personal property.



We live in bear country

We live in bear country, so remember that : "A Fed Bear is A Dead Bear". California Department of Wildlife does not relocate bears that are getting into trash and other resources for food, they shoot and kill them on site. We must do our part to ensure that the bears that inhabit our area are safe and free from human interaction.

If you encounter a bear do the following:

1)      Back away from the bear and let the bear know you see him

2)      Make loud noises

3)      Make yourself look larger that you are

4)      Do not run

5)      Do not approach the bear or the cubs in the surrounding vicinity

6)      Notify PMO and Environmental ASAP

Please be BEAR AWARE
