Significant reduction in Phragmites has been seen in the 14 acres of sites that have been cut 2-3 times in the Fishing Islands.
This should be a very positive year fighting the Phrag!! Volunteers needed for all days!!!

Friends of Oliphant 2019 Shoreline Cleanup Complete
This year’s Cleanup was a great success!
We had 13 enthusiastic volunteers participate this year who helped remove over 325 lbs of garbage from the stretch of roadside and shoreline from Sandy Bay to South Oliphant.
“I have a cottage in Oliphant. I maintain my own graphs of water levels to entertain myself. With the summer season here, I thought followers of this web site might be interested having a look at them.” - Grant Simmie
Spring is here and to date she has been very generous with the season’s requisite rain showers, but quite stingy with her sunshine and warmth. However, the trilliums are blooming, the ferns are unfurling, the lake levels are continuing to rise and our seasonal feathered friends are visiting once again. The Friends of Oliphant executive have been busy over the winter and early spring planning this upcoming season’s events that we hope will engage our community in matters of interest to all those who live, cottage and visit here.
