Canadian Geese

Have you noticed the large amount of Canadian geese on the lakes this year? They are enjoyable to watch, however they can be very loud (especially at 2 a.m.) and geese that are no longer migrating can cause problems with the quality of the lake. There are a few things that you can do to help both the geese and the lake. The most important is do not feed the geese. Read the linked article for more information.
