Mt. Lorne, Yukon

The Hamlet of Mt. Lorne extends from just south of the junction of the Alaska and Klondike Highways to south of Bear Creek, and down the Annie Lake Road to the Wheaton River bridge. It covers an area of 245 square kilometers with a population of 410 people.

The Mt. Lorne area has a rich history. First Nations people have a long tradition of hunting and gathering in this region. In 1992, an archaeological dig at Annie Lake discovered remains of campsites dating back over 8000 years.

Recently, easy access to trails and tales of big snow have made Mt. Lorne a favoured area for mushers training for the Yukon Quest and Iditarod.

Hello all

Please find  below some info from  WildWise …

With all the cubs we saw last year we might be in for an interesting year… bearwise..

LMCA

On behalf of WildWise Yukon and Conservation Officer Services of the Department of Environment,

SPRING IS HERE AND THAT MEANS BEARS ARE WAKING UP!

People need to remember that at this time of year bears are waking up hungry, so they are very focused on finding food. Attached is some information about managing attractants and when out enjoying the trails, which we should continue to do, please follow safe practices. Travel in groups and make noise, keep dogs on leash, carry bear spray/bangers/horns and know how to use them. Most importantly please keep yards clean and use electric fencing (and turn it on) if you have chickens and other domestics. See below for helpful details.

ELECTRIC FENCING- FOR GARDENS, LIVESTOCK, CHICKEN COOPS, COMPOST AND MORE!

Electric Fences are a proven way to help prevent bears from obtaining food rewards, damaging your property or accessing your livestock. While their purchase requires an initial investment they pay for themselves in the long-run if used properly (think about how much $ your chickens & feed cost you...one fox or bear and that can disappear quickly). 

The FeedStore/Pet Junction in Whitehorse carries a variety of electric fence options for securing feed and poultry. Margo supplies has a great variety of proven fences for any fencing situation and budget you may have - you can purchase these products in the Yukon via Hurlbert Enterprises

WILDLIFE RESISTANT GARBAGE AND COMPOST OPTIONS: 

There is a Yukon supplier who can help you purchase products from Bearsaver and Haul-All bear-proof bin producers.

Contact Connor Nielsen at 867-334-9059 or at connor@nems.co for prices and various bin options. 

UnBearAble Bins

Rollins Machinery Ltd. - these bins have been tested in our pilot study research program in Whitehorse since 2013. 

Be safe, Be WildWise and enjoy the outdoors.

Sincerely,

WildWise Yukon
