Minnesota DNR Eagle Cam

The Minnesota DNR's Eagle Cam is up and running with interesting action to watch.  There is already one egg in the nest and there should be more over the next few days.  It is quite early for the female to lay the eggs, but these are experienced eagle parents and hopefully all will go well.  This is the link where you can watch the nest:  Minnesota DNR Eagle Webcam  This is the same link that can be found in the "Webcams" box on our sidebar to the right. 

For more information about these eagles check out the DNR's EagleCam blog page:  EagleCam FAQ.html

Updates Posted for Ice In Data and Lake Management

Winter Lake: picture taken by Linda Smith
Long Lake is well into the winter season, but your Lake Association is still hard at work.  This week we updated the Lake Management Plan.  You can find the full plan by clicking on the Lake Management tab above or by clicking here.

We also have updated the graph that shows Ice In Data for 2014.  The official Ice In day was December 24, 2014.  Most of Long Lake had frozen over earlier, but the deepest spot was just barely covered and we had a December thaw.  The cold temperatures hit again just before Christmas to officially freeze the entire lake.  Click here to go to the Ice Data page.

So far there does not seem to be much action on the ice yet - a few ice fisherman and a snowmobile or two.  Maybe the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday will bring people out to play.
