Which Canisters Are Allowed?
Sierra land managers are unified in their desire to protect black bears from the ill effects of obtaining human food, but specific regulations vary between different parks and forests. Currently, each management area decides which food storage techniques and products are allowed in their area.
To determine where canisters are REQUIRED check the Sierra Food Storage Map.
To determine which specific techniques and products are ALLOWED in a certain area, check directly with the land managers:
National Park Service
US Forest Service
