Muskoka Light Pollution Solutions
August 10, 2017
Light Pollution. We have all heard the term many times before, partially because in recent months a plethora of information has been published on topics surrounding this issue. But what really is the problem? Simply put, light pollution is the wasteful by-product of our society’s seemingly obsessive desire to light up every place and every thing we encounter at night. Light pollution is insidious, even in Muskoka. It creeps slowly into our communities, rural areas and even lakefront retreats with almost every renovation or new building project. It isn’t necessarily the result of people’s negligence but rather their lack of ...
Muskoka's North Lake Joseph
July 20, 2017
Cottaging in Muskoka can take on different forms. Some are drawn to Muskoka for its many amenties and activities. Others are lured and lulled by the peace, tranquility and true escape from city life. If you fall into the latter category, you'll find yourself looking for a larger parcel of land with wider frontage. Larger waterfront properties usually translate into greater privacy. If you really want a peaceful retreat, far away from boat traffic, road noise and the eyes of neighbours you can find this in the northern half of Lake Joseph.

Spring Flood Potential Muskoka Lakes
March 11, 2017
Muskoka Braces for Another Year of Flooding Although the Muskoka Lakes Association (MLA) has been actively requesting the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) to anticipate and mitigate flooding by lowering the lake levels earlier and to a greater extent than in the past - nothing has changed. The issue of flooding seems to be a constant news topic. With heavy snowfall earlier in the year along with mild temperatures in January and February creating melting conditions there is increased risk of flooding. In fact, only a prolonged period of cold, dry weather will allow lake water to be lowered to target levels. The MLA has ...
