Sep 14 2020 Smoke
The view from my office on Monday morning, September 14, 2020 - horrendous smoke.
A little rain on Sunday night and a beautiful day on Monday, September 21, 2020.
There was more smoke drifting in late Monday afternoon from the south but certainly not like we had last week, thank goodness! The smoke smothered the valley on Saturday, September 12th, primarily moving in from the wildfires south of us in the United States. The worst of it lasted for just over a week. Our thoughts are with those dealing with wildfires in the US as well as those in BC.
Here is a little update from Blaire Smith, our Wildlife Technician, regarding the northern leopard frog migration currently taking place. There is also a notification regarding new water controls to be installed across the dike at the south end of Duck Lake in October.

At this time of year endangered northern leopard frogs, like the one pictured here, migrate across and forage on the Duck Lake dike road making them very vulnerable to motorized vehicles. This is a friendly reminder that the dike road south and around Duck Lake (on CVWMA), at the north end of Channel Road, is now closed to all motorized vehicles until October 15th to protect these threatened frogs. Pedestrians and cyclists are welcome to use the dike, however we ask that people report any vehicles seen beyond the gates.
