Cool Web Site

KAXE member, Jerry Angst, has a great web site. Jerry owns Little Bass Lake Resort in Cohasset. He includes a lot of phenology on his LBLR Chronicles including great photographs of wildlife. Jerry has preserved the old time "mom and pop" atmosphere at his resort. He also used native plants to do a beautiful shoreline restoration job on the thousand feet of shoreline at the resort. Jerry's neighbor, Kim Jamtgaard, lives across the road on (much bigger)Bass Lake. Kim owns Wildwood Resort. She's also doing shoreland restoration work at her resort. These projects not only protect water quality and improve shoreline and aquatic habitat for wildlife, but also are a great way for their guests staying at the resort to get first-hand insights about how the lake and shoreline comes alive when the natural systems are restored. Jerry's photos of the June bloom of Showy Ladyslippers along his shoreline are on the front page of KAXE's web site and on the Phenology page.
