The loons are again calling Elbow Valley home — We are pleased that they have returned for another season! This year we will be restricting island access at Clearwater Lake to safeguard the nesting and chick development stages of the loons. During this critical stage, disruption from humans, animals or other predators may cause the loon parent to abandon their egg/nest.
The implementation of this program was a great success last year, and we are pleased to support this initiative on an annual basis.
Expect this period of closure to last for approximately 5-6 weeks (estimated mid-June).
