The 2021 annual picnic and meeting was a great success!

Jon Mobeck, Executive Director at the National Loon Center in Cross Lake spoke about the importance of loons, some of the biology of loons, and how we can help maintain the loon population. He mentioned that if someone finds an injured loon, they should contact the Loon Center first due to the resources he has available. He also suggested that if anyone has questions, they should contact him.

During the meeting there was a question about the drones on Island Lake:

 

From the information we found here are some facts:

- It is legal to own and operate a drone.

- In general, privacy is not violated since airspace is "public" and an expectation of privacy is not protected on beaches or open areas.

- Drones are treated as aircraft and cannot be shot by property owners

- It is possible that in some cases a drone may violate privacy and in those cases the property opener should contact local law enforcement.

 

As a lake association we have no enforcement authority, but are able to pass on information that is generally available on public sources. We can and will encourage drone owners to be courteous and respectful in the operation of any drones.

 

If the property owner has specific issues, it is best that they contact local law enforcement. Use the link below for more information:
