Beaver Creek Park officials are taking some steps to help people avoid problems with bears.

A black bear was recently spotted in Beaver Creek Park, a Thursday afternoon press release from the park said. The bear was seen on the south end of the park near Blackie Coulee.

"As far as I know, this is the first confirmed sighting in a long time," said Aubrey Williams, assistant to the superintendent of Beaver Creek Park.

Park officials announced they are removing trash receptacles and putting in a pack in-pack out policy south of Lions Campground to reduce the chance of attracting bears.
