Bear canisters required on Avery Creek

Written by 

Bear-safe food storage is now mandatory within 1,000 feet of Avery Creek Road following an Emergency Food Storage Order issued June 12.

All food and food-related items must now be stored in a hard-sided bear-resistant canister or in the trunk of a vehicle except when preparing or consuming food. Coolers, boxes, cans, tents, soft-sided campers and passenger areas of vehicles are not considered bear-resistant. 

Avery Creek Road is in the Pisgah Ranger District of the Pisgah National Forest, near Asheville. The order is in effect through Oct. 5.
