“There has been at least one serious bear and human encounter on a trail at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area,” Conservation Sudbury said in a Facebook post. “The incident took place on June 28 on the popular Moonlight Beach Trail. This trail runs from the far end of South Bay Road easterly to Moonlight Beach. There is no reason to believe that the bear has left the area. The bear made contact with the trail user who sustained minor injuries and sought medical attention.”

Conservation Sudbury will be pointing the way to a fuller experience for users of the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area.
General Manager Carl Jorgensen says new signage will help people navigate the 970-hectare preserve in the middle of the city.
Existing signage has often been slapped together, Jorgensen said, and were often made of foam core boards and even paper wrapped in plastic.
