Bear Safety in Sturgeon Point

It’s that time of year again, and we would like to remind all area residents about the importance of bear safety in our community.

There have been several incidents in the past few weeks where bears have been very active, tipping garbage cans, rummaging looking for any source of food.

Please help by ensuring that all garbage is secure, and putting your garbage out until the morning is also a good practice. 

The Ministry of Natural Resources has released the provincial bear reporting hot-line number. Its toll-free and a part of the Bear Wise program, which educates people on how to avoid attracting bears. The number to remember is 1-866-514-2327.

Kawartha Lakes Stewards Association Survey

The Kawartha Lakes Stewards Association (KLSA) is seeking your participation in this survey on Eurasian watermilfoil. Eurasian watermilfoil is an exotic, invasive, aquatic plant species found in the Kawartha Lakes. We are concerned with your opinions on the potential use of a biological control method to reduce the presence and density of this plant. Your opinions will help KLSA align our goals and projects with the public’s needs and desires. Your experience living with this plant makes your participation in this survey extremely valuable. The results will be used for several purposes, including:

1. To better understand public concerns and aquatic plant issues
2. To assess public support for a biological control program to control Eurasian Watermilfoil
3. To direct future informative materials on exotic, invasive plants

The survey can be accessed at: . It takes about 5 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey by Wednesday, March 9, 2011. Please feel free to forward this email to other Kawartha Lake residents.
