Congratulations and thanks are in order to Kim Kiefer and the folks at the City and Borough Parks and Recreation Department. The city has purchased and installed new bear-proof trash bins in Cope Park, along the Mendenhall River Trail and other places sometimes frequented by bruins. The new trash bins are a nifty design from Canada that have frustrated the best scavenging efforts by bears in Kluane, Banff and other bear hot spots.
The funds for the new bear-proof (and ultimately "bear friendly") trash bins came from the cruise ship passenger fund, all of which shows that Juneau's head tax is good for passengers, locals and bears alike.
