TURTLE CROSSING

Please use caution when traveling on North Lakeshore Drive as many turtles have been killed or injured by automobiles.  Other areas of concern are Lake Drive and South Lakeshore Drive.


We have acquired signs from the DNR to make people aware of the crossing areas (pictured right).


Please help us protect the turtles in our area, some of which are listed as threatened species.

Who makes the rules where I plan to burn

It is your responsibility to know where you are burning and what restrictions apply. DNR annual burning permits are only valid within DNR Protection Areas and outside incorporated cities and villages. Remember, you must also comply with local ordinances that may be more restrictive than state law. Contact your local fire department, town chairperson, or local municipal official if you have any questions.
