Injured Swan

If anyone is willing to help the swan that appears to be stranded on large LLJ, please call Kecia at 250-377-8881. Conservation, Wildlife Park, SPCA and various Search and Rescue departments as well as the LL Fire Chief have been contacted for guidance. This is what was gathered:

The Wildlife Park will take the bird if it can be caught. To catch it we will need a flat bottomed fly-fishing type boat. Smaller would be better. We will need 2 people willing to go out in the boat and try to get the bird. Ideally, they would stay in the boat and push themselves out on the ice in case it gives. The boat will need to have a rope that will allow contact with the shore the entire trip and a winch, if possible, to help pull it back to shore. I am willing to go in the boat but need some help…..Everyone in the boat needs proper flotation devices. We will need a large blanket to try to subdue the bird with.

If anyone is willing to try, let’s do this! I work every aft so would have to do it first thing in the morning.

Snow Removal @ LLJ

Does anyone know of who may be available to provide snow removal services at LLJ? Would be good for some of us seasonal residents to call ahead of time before we head up for a stay.

Please advise if you know of anyone.

Trapping Season

Little Bob + Maggie
Trapping season is almost upon us! There are 3 active traplines in the area so you need to pay attention when out with dogs and children.

Unfortunately, we don't know the locations of traplines. Your best guess is to watch for human tracks off of logging roads. If you are aware of trap locations please let us know!

Thanks to Bev Lorimer for the reminder.

Logging Truck Crash

By now most residents will have seen the pile of logs on Lac Le Jeune Road near the community mailboxes. If you're wondering what happened here is the article in the Kamloops Daily News

As Bev Lorimer mentioned to reporters, we have witnessed some fast-moving logging trucks in our area. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured in the accident.

Gym Membership Anyone?

I don't understand why people drive to Kamloops to workout at a gym when we have everything we need right here in our own community. ;-) Do you know where to find this fantastic outdoor facility?
