Important Information Regarding Bears

-A A +A

Bears are on the move in New Paltz and are searching for food after hibernating all winter long. Please take down your bird feeders, store or secure garbage cans, and remove any other food sources they may come across around your home. The DEC provides guidance for homeowners on reducing potential conflicts with bears at https://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/6995.html. For more information or to report a problem with black bears, contact the DEC Region 3 Office at (845) 256-3098.
