Blue Lake Notes: It’s been a bit rainy…

It’s been a bit rainy I suppose lately – but that doesn’t stop Blue Lake from getting out and getting things done! 

In February, the Friends of the Annie and Mary Rail Trail held a somewhat wet and muddy event called the Mad Scramble, which consisted of a timed mountain bike race through an engineered track near the trail that circles the Power’s Creek District. That trail is still there in part, so if you fancy a few hills and obstacles on your mountain bike, go check it out.

Work day 

Coming up on Saturday, March 9 is another chance to remove invasive plants from Powers Creek. 

Join Mad River Alliance and others in this fun work day any time between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

Coffee and snacks and tools are provided. Meet up is at the Mad River Brewery parking lot. 

Green waste days

There will only be thee greenwaste days this year, and all are for Blue Lake residents only – be prepared to show proof of residence through your water bill or other means.
