*We are having issues with bears in the community.

Some tips on how to keep the bears away.

· Don’t place your garbage outside unsecured

· Do not leave pet food, bird seed, and/or garbage outside.

· Do not leave food outside for any wildlife.

· Clean your barbeque grill after use and never dump the grease outside.


Eliminating the feeding source will help detract bears! Black bears will consume almost anything.

Special Notice: 


Communities in Carbon County PA learned in 2016, that a major wind energy corporation has leased property from the Bethlehem Authority. The industrial wind corporation submitted a proposal to the Penn Forest Township Zoning Board to construct a wind turbine project comprising approximately 37 industrial wind turbines up to 525 ft high, with over a 300 ft spin range, along several ridges in Penn Forest Township. This forest is an important watershed since it provides drinking water for the city of Bethlehem.  It is also adjacent to several communities, including Towamensing Trails, Hickory Run Forest, and Beltzville Lake Estates. Hundreds of acres of forest will be cleared for this project, destroying the habitat for the area wildlife and fragmenting the extensive forest.  The negative impact on quality of life and property values is enormous.
