Geese Management

Geese Management
The efforts to control the Canadian Geese population on the lake continued this year with the help of Jim Maxwell and a team of volunteers. Two egg addling expeditions were held in the spring on the islands and lake shore. A total of twenty three nests were found and forty five eggs were addled. Many surrounding lakes and reservoirs also have the issue of too may geese but so far, through the efforts of our committed team, we have been able to stay ahead of the goose population. This is a continuing task and everyone’s help is requested. Please report any goose nest that has been missed to the committee contact us page.
