OLRA AGM - Monday, May 22nd 2017 9-noon

Date Posted: May 7, 2017

The question has come up as to why OLRA is having our AGM on Monday instead of Sunday. The reason is the Foley Community Centre was booked for a wedding on the Saturday before and could not be cleaned in time for OLRA to have a Sunday morning meeting. So the Board decided to have the meeting on Monday morning instead. We will see how people like Monday vs Sunday when a lot of people still have company for the long weekend. See you there!

Mapping, Tracking and Removing Invasive Species

Date Posted: May 2, 2017

Invasive species cause a lot of damage to native species and their habitat. A seminar on Phragmites on April 28th at Canador College brought that home to a packed room of people from the municipalities, other levels of government, lake associations and concerned citizens. To report what you think is an invasive species from your mobile device use the app www.EDDMapS.org/ONTARIO or email photos, location and description to eddmaps@ofah.org or call 1-800-563-7711 The info will be verified and mapped. The next step is to put together a plan to tackle the problem if possible. Thanks for your help.

Ice Out!

Date Posted: April 10, 2017

As per our ice watcher, Bruce Gibbon: Today is the day! The ice over the monitoring spot disappeared this morning and now the main lake is wide open. Still a little ice is in sheltered bays but I expect it will go in the next day os so. 94 days of ice cover this winter, just below average of 95.
