Bear and Injured Cougar Sighings

June 14, 2020

Spider Lake Community posted that a bear was heading towards the Pineridge Market this morning and one of the young cougars has been hit by a car and is injured in our area.

Conservation Officers say to be extra careful as injured cougars will typically hunt for easy prey so keep extra close attention to your kids, animals and livestock at this time.

 

Interim Park Manager

Spider Lake Springs Resort Board of Directors would like to extend a warm welcome to Brian Lamb, who, effective immediately, will be taking on the role of Interim Park Manager for the remainder of the camping season.

Brian has been a site owner for five years and recently retired from a 30 year career with the Sheriff Services Department.

Brian has a wealth of experience and knowledge to bring to the park manager position including carpentry, plumbing, electrical, roofing, timber work, sewage management, supervisory skills, health and safety standards and time management.

As with any new job one needs time to get into the swing of things, please allow Brian a couple of weeks to adjust. He will be setting up time at the office for anyone who would like to meet with him after the initial adjustment period.

Al Mainprize, has made the difficult decision to resign his position due to family reasons. The Board of Directors would like to thank Al for all his hard work and dedication to Spider Lake Springs Resort over the years.

Please remember to be respectful of each other and the staff by keeping a safe and respectful distance.
