Improving Rural Internet Connectivity

Residents will have received a letter in the mail from TNRD with a link to a survey regarding experiences with internet for personal or business use. Many of us work and study from home and are struggling to get the connectivity we need. Meanwhile, we continue to pay for services we're not receiving. 

Please complete the survey before October 5, 2020.

So long, tree

Last week many residents noticed something was very different as they wandered up Lac Le Jeune Road. Our very familiar and loved tree had come down. The nest at the top was home to ospreys (and the occasional goose with goslings!). We will all miss seeing this landmark and the bird activity surrounding it.

Toad migration has begun!

The western toad migration has begun! These little guys cross Lac Le Jeune Road every summer around this time in a stretch of road near the Michell Ranch.

You can help out these little toads by taking the Coquihalla on your trips to Kamloops during migration. They are so small many people don’t even notice them on the road.

Lake Monitoring Program: Call for Volunteers!

The Lac Le Jeune Lake Monitoring Program has been quietly humming along thanks coordinator Hugh Burton and the many volunteers over the years. Going forward Hugh will still be involved but residents Colleen and Ron Lister have stepped up to take care of the scheduling and servicing equipment. 

Several individuals have indicated interest in assisting with lake monitoring. However, we could use more volunteers. Ideally we will be have enough pairs to do one profile per month from ice off to ice on -- so approximately 7 months. 

This is fun work and you will learn from the experts. You will be trained in the procedures and who knows, there might even be a t-shirt ;) 

Hope to hear from you! (Leave a comment).
