The Northern Bear Awareness Society is URGENTLY SEEKING volunteer apple pickers this week starting today! Are you available for 2-3 hours on any of the following dates? Wednesday, August 31 Thursday, September 1 Friday, September 2 Please send Northern Bear Awareness a message stating when you are available and we will supply more information. Thank you! More info on the project: It's officially apple season, and apples are a major bear attractant. To keep our community and the bears safe during this time NBAS and Northern Lights Estate Winery are teaming up again to collect local apples that would otherwise be wasted and/or attract bears to homes. The winery is NOW accepting apple donations on our behalf until further notice. All apples will be pressed at Northern Lights Estate Winery to turn into wine, and NBAS will receive a donation for the apples! Excessively bruised apples will find their way to livestock - nothing will be wasted!
