Hope everyone is ready for a 4th of July celebration weekend on beautiful Caribou Lake. As you prepare your weekend plans, don’t forget about our annual boat parade hosted by Rosie and Les Adolphson. Get your boats ready and meet in the bay by Shady Lane (north of Kehtel Road) to line up at 1:00pm. Last year’s winner gets to award this year’s trophy. We can’t wait to see your creative and festive boats come to life!
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.
The next Caribou Lake Association meeting will be held Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 10:00am at the Sheet Metal Workers Labor Building. For those that have been in the area a while, this is the old Caribou Lake School building. The address is 6279 Industrial Road, Saginaw, MN 55779 and the building is located on the corner of Industrial Road and Munger Shaw Road.
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.
Caribou Lake has many outdoor enthusiasts and I often see neighbors who regularly walk, jog, or bike with their families and pets down the well-used pavement on Sunny and Shady Lanes. I am sure many other roads around the lake get used frequently as well, so it is nice to have a new off-road option to explore. The Industrial Road One-Mile Loop Trail is now open for hikers and bikers. The trailhead is located at 5594 Industrial Road and has ample signage and parking.
