All garbage and attractants MUST be removed each evening. We have brought in a large green bin in the lower lot to place your garbage. (Do not leave garbage bags beside any of the bins, please deposit them INSIDE the bin)  There is a bear that has been active in the base area & surrounding community.  Please help us keep the area attractant (and bear-free) for the weekend.
