CLA Receives State Grant

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.

Rolling Thunder

An approaching lightning storm made for quit a spectacular light show last night.
This picture was taken as the storm reflected the incredible beauty of nature and the handiwork of God onto the calm waters of Caribou Lake.




Weed Harvesting

Update: Our permit to cut weeds has been renewed for the 2013 season.  We have requested that 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 has a new home at the end of Birch Point Road.  Blades have been sharpened and cutting will 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.
