Charmaine Jones and Pam Hickman do loon surveys for Bird Studies Canada. The numbers and health of waterfowl, as true for fish and other species as well, can say a lot about the well being of a lake.

2013 numbers (August count) were: 19-20 adult loons, 5 mature chicks (East Basin) and 17-18 adults, 1 mature chick (West Basin).

Keeping boat wakes low in sensitive areas, and construction of loon platforms are ways in which everyone can help. Watch for "go slow" signs.
