The new members reflect the organization’s goal of expanding its expertise and seeking ways for Freedom, Ossipee, and Effingham to work more closely on important lake issues.
Almost a decade after it was created, the management plan for Ossipee Lake Natural Area is paying off, with damaged plant communities on the rebound, and boaters largely staying away from posted areas. New maps at the reconstructed Route 25 public boat ramp are in the works for 2018.
It’s the state’s largest stratified drift aquifer, and it’s been in the news lately. But are you confused about what the Ossipee Aquifer actually is and why it’s important? A public presentation on August 1 will help.
Our area’s communities are publicly at odds with one another over an irreplaceable shared resource that is vitally important to our future. Green Mountain Conservation Group’s proposal to establish an Aquifer Advisory Committee to get our towns on the same page regarding protection efforts has our support. The kick-off meeting, on July 17, is open to everyone who wants to learn more.
A boat stolen from The Bluffs crashed into a house at Deer Cove early Monday morning after reportedly speeding erratically on the big lake. No one in the house was injured, and the boat driver is missing.
