Outdoor Safety & Ethics


Wildlife Hazards - Black Bears

When visiting the Osceola National Forest, it is important to "Be Bear Aware" by taking appropriate safety precautions. We can avoid conflicts with bears by never approaching or feeding them. Human behavior plays a significant role in the behavior of bears.

Campfire Safety

Forest fires often start from campfires that were not put out. You can be held responsible for suppression costs if your campfire starts a wildfire.
