Lake City Friends of the Bears is dedicated to the reduction of

bear-human conflict through many educational projects and the use of humane bear deterrents.


We are an all volunteer organization dedicated to our area black bears. We officially registered as a nonprofit corporation on Oct 26, 2012.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit.


Some of our projects planned for this year are:

• Bear Proof Trash Cart Program

  135 in the area so far!

• Bear Proof Food Lockers for tent

  camping at Lake San Cristobal

• Lake City School Visit

• Bear Day Event


We rely on donations from our community businesses, residents and visitors. Donations are accepted year round, and are greatly appreciated.

Get Involved

Take a walk around your neighborhood and think like a bear. Are dumpsters unsecured? Did you witness someone feeding a bear or feeding deer?

Email us to set up a Bear Smart audit of your home or business.
