We have a new baby on the lake! This family was spotted off the end of Birch Point Road in the bay. The pictures are quite zoomed in to give the family space. Please be mindful of their space as we watch this little one grow.
As we quickly enter loon nesting season, we have placed our 3 loon nesting platforms from last year’s Eagle Scout project with the Proctor BSA troop #84. We have tried 3 locations close to shore but away from land predators. As you kayak and boat in the areas around our lake you will see the platforms by the Work Farm shoreline, Birch Point creek inlet, and at the little creek at the end of Sunny Lane. Please give the platforms and loons space to help preserve this beautiful bird.
Starting June 30, 2020, CLA began meeting with Proctor BSA troop #84 regarding the building and placement of loon nesting platforms on Caribou Lake. The Eagle Scout Project was completed around the first of September and we are excited to share the photos and information with our Caribou Lake enthusiasts.
As Northern Minnesota residents, we are fortunate to live in an area with some of the darkest skies in the Eastern United States. But it’s important that we take measures now to preserve this treasure. There will be a special presentation geared toward lake property owners and rural residents on October 1st 2020 at 7:00pm on Zoom and Facebook.
