are placing renewal emphasis on picking up
trash along Sky Bryce Subdivision
roads. In 2000, in lieu of
semi-annual clean-up days, we initiated an
Adopt-a-Road program. Currently, these members
have adopted a road and are
responsible for keeping it clear of trash and
debris. They also report to the SBA
office with any problems such as fallen
trees, hanging branches, or anything that
may pose a hazard.
encourage you to join this group by

little, it will be a great contribution to
maintaining the beauty and safety of our
those members who already signed up,

What do I do if I meet a bear face-to-face?
Bears are shy creatures and will generally avoid contact with humans if at all possible. But, if you should find yourself near a bear:
- Make your presence known to the bear by clapping your hands or making other noises
- Never corner a bear - make sure it has an escape route
- If the bear huffs, snaps, pops its jaws or swats the ground, it's warning you that you're to close. Slowly back away.
- If you meet a bear at close range, remain standing upright, avoid direct eye contact and back up slowly while speaking in a calm, assertive voice. If the bear still does not leave, get into your car or house if you can.
A bear may "bluff charge" when cornered, threatened, or attempting to obtain food. Stand your ground and slowly back away.
Are there laws pertaining to feeding bears?
The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries adopted a rule that became effective on July 1, 2003 making it illegal to intentially feed bears. The law states, in part, as follows: "It shall be unlawful for any person to place or distribute food, minerals, carrion, or similar substances to feed or attract bear...or for any other purpose if the placement of these materials results in the presence of bear in such numbers and circumstance to cause annoyance to any person, property damage, or endanger any person or wildlife."
In other words, you can also be liable if you unintentially attract bears by leaving out garbage, pet food and/or bird feeders. You could receive a written warning by the Game Warden if a bear gets into your birdfeeder or other scraps.
The regulation is intended to curtail the feeding of bears because it causes them to lose their innate fear of humans and their instincts for finding food in the wild.
If a bear does get into your pet food or bird feeders, the Game Warden recommends that you remove the food immediately and keep it away for at least three weeks. He also suggests that grills and garbage be stored in a garage or shed. Trash should be put out for collection - even if it's bagged and in cans - on the morning it's picked up rather than the night before.
