LLJ Wilderness Resort Restaurant

Get out of the kitchen!

The Lac Le Jeune Wilderness Resort restaurant will be opening Friday May 16th! The plan is to open every weekend unless there is a private function. Watch for the sandwich board on the road. If it's there, it's open!

The menus are available online. Look under Amenities on the LLJ Wilderness Resort website.

Thanks to Charlene from LLJ Wilderness Resort for passing along this excellent news.

Watershed Maps

These maps were prepared for the Lac Le Jeune Conservation Association by the GIS/ Mapping Services of the BC Ministry of Environment. Special thanks to Marge Sidney from Environmental Protection Division, Monitoring, Compliance & Stewardship, for organizing these customized maps.

Tip: Click on each map for a larger view 

The map above includes recreation trails and the Provincial Park boundaries.
Pine beetle infestation occurred in most of the watershed. This map shows the severity of the infestation.
Range tenures cover almost the entire watershed. This map is to illustrate that all but a small area have range tenures.

Come set a spell

Our Little Free Library now has a bench! We owe a big thanks to John Krawchuk for making this beautiful place to sit while making decisions about which books and DVDs to carry home. 

The Lac Le Jeune Little Free Library is located on Lookout Road. Drop by with books, magazines and DVDs. Take whatever you want! Well, except the bench, of course. :-)

Freshly cut trees?

Does anyone know who is cutting these trees are being cut along Lac Le Jeune Drive between Park Drive East and Rainbow, and why? Not all trees are down, just some (and it appears random), and they were not close enough to the road, or tall enough, to be causing any issues.

This poor quality photo is by Sylvia Currie :-)
Thanks to Cynthia Swain for the great question!
