FireSmart: Zoning Out!

In the last post, we explored FireSmart Zones 0 and 1.'ve got the area immediately around your house cleaned up and the yard closest to your house is golden, now is the time to move a little further out in your yard to the 10-30m area (or Zone 2 in FireSmart)!

In this zone, you really want to think about tree spacing (3m apart for coniferous trees) and pruning the tree branches within 2m of the ground. This step may involve removing smaller coniferous trees that could allow fire to move into the treetops. You don’t need to clear cut your yard here, this is about selectively removing trees to protect your home, while still maintaining Lac Le Jeune’s natural beauty! 

Not sure how to prune your large trees? The FireSmart guide even provides tips and tricks for that! There is also a wonderful landscaping guide and hub to help shape your future choices! 

Note: Don’t want to wait until our next FireSmart Tip? You can go right to the FireSmart site and download the FireSmart Begins at Home Manual. This manual outlines the steps you can take at home to reduce the potential impacts of wildfire. Watch for a print copy on your door step in the coming weeks – if you we haven’t already reached your house!

Lake Monitoring: All the Cool Kids Are Doing It! Training Date Set!

We are delighted to report that the LLJ Lake Monitoring program is back in action!  The probe is working and we were able to get measurements on the big lake in January and February, but we need your help.  We are still looking for volunteers to assist with this important program to ensure our lake stays healthy. 

With a few more volunteers,it will only be a teeny, tiny commitment to participate! We have a training date set (Thursday, May 12, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 3840 Rainbow Drive on the lakeside lower deck) and will provide all the resources you need. All you need to do is volunteer a few hours of your time!  

Come on out, join us and learn more (and we promise there will be treats). As an added bonus, you have an excuse to get out on the lake (either summer or winter)! 

Please contact Colleen Kennedy ( or 778-921-0095) if you are interested in learning more!  Can’t make the orientation on the 12th? No worries, we can also provide 1:1 training at a later date. If you are signing up, please advise if you have access to an ice auger for the winter monitoring. For those who have already signed up – we’ve got you!
