*** Update *** 2015 has been a year of rapid weed growth. We have been asked when the weeds will be cut in different parts of the lake. The answer is – we aren’t sure. We have found hiring a person to run the cutter to be a challenge. Two of our volunteers from last year have had hip surgery and are on lifting restrictions. If you would like to be sure that your area is cut next, give us a few hours of your time and we will teach you how to use the equipment safely.
Our permit to cut weeds has been renewed for the 2015 season. A new lane be allowed between Sunny Lane and Birch Point. This would effectively give us a clear path around the entire lake. We are in need of someone to co-ordinate cutting activities. If you are able to help, send a note through ‘Contact Us’ on the ‘Our Association’ tab. Thanks.
Our weed harvester”s summer home is at the end of Birch Point Road. Blades have been sharpened and cutting should begin mid-July. We are only allowed to cut through the end of August. If you would like to learn to drive the cutter and help by volunteering some time, please contact tmarchand(at)CaribouLake.org or leave a reply to this post.

The Caribou Lake Association has received a substantial grant from the State of Minnesota to fund boat inspections at both the Birch Point and Industrial Road Public Launches. The purpose of these inspections will be to assist boaters in compliance with state invasive species control regulations. Boats will be inspected before launch and after they have again been pulled out. Your cooperation with the inspection program is most appreciated and will go a long way to help prevent the spread of destructive plants and animal material to and from other lakes. For more information, please contact us at ‘Our Association/Contact Us’ on the home page.
For years, owners and visitors to Sunny, Shady and Holly Lanes and Kehtel Road have been greeted by our signature signboard on Industrial Road. At our last CLA meeting it was decided that the sign needed a facelift. Continue reading
