Lassen National Park has implemented an emergency food storage plan which requires use of an “allowed canister.” The list does not include Ursack. The plan is open to comment from the public until September 8, 2016. To add your comment, use this link:
Some of the things you may wish to consider in making a comment.
>The Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) certified Ursack S29 AllWhite has never been torn open by a bear.
> Some of the “approved” canisters on Lassen’s list have never been certified by the IGBC.
>Many of the approved hard sided canisters have repeatedly been compromised by bears (about 25 in Yosemite in 2013).
>Campers are much more likely to carry a 7.8 ounce Ursack than a 2-3 pound hard sided canister.
Thanks for your help.
