The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority would like to inform the public about a recent bear sighting at the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area. Given our rural location this is not uncommon. Although the risk of an encounter is low, please use caution and be aware of your surroundings when hiking and walking in conservation areas.
MVCA will continue to closely monitor bear activity and will take further precautions if necessary.
