Bear Notice from Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Attention Ken Caryl Residents

Please help! Several bears are frequenting the Ken-Caryl Valley and are, unfortunately, finding many attractants in your community. Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is asking that you take the following measures to protect your home, your neighbors and the bears in your community:

  • Remove all birdfeeders (Feed birds November through March only)
  • Keep trash secured and locked in your garage
  • Place trash on curb the morning of pick-up
  • Keep garage doors closed
  • Keep BBQ grills clean and store inside


Bears that continue to find attractants in neighborhoods are eventually killed. It is up to you and your neighborhood to help us avoid this situation.

For more information, please visit the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department website or contact their office at Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. at 303-291-7227.
