Fish and Wildlife Taking Advisor Applications Through Today

Big Bear, Ca July 13, 2011 12:00 pm – In Big Bear, all residents and visitors are stakeholders in the health and vitality of the fish and wildlife in the Valley.  Much of the allure of our resort community is the abundant fishing and the chance to see eagles and other wildlife.  Big Bear and other California residents have an opportunity to serve as advisors to the state Fish and Wildlife Strategic Vision Committees and to participate in making policies about our resources, however they must apply before the end of the day today.  The Strategic Vision Advisory Group will include representatives of a wide range of organizations involved in creating a joint vision for the state’s fish and wildlife resources.  The group’s main purpose is to coordinate and identify spokespersons for interested groups in order to include them in the Strategic Vision process.  Those interested in applying can access the application online at http://www.vision.ca.gov/stakeholder_advisory.html.

Eagles Seen in the Big Bear Valley

Big Bear, Ca March 13, 2011 3:00 pm – The bald eagles that visit Big Bear during the winter months are one of the spectacular sites around the lake.  These large birds enjoy the plentiful fish and ducks available in our lakes because the water is not often completely frozen.  Each winter since 1979, the US Forest Service has conducted counts of the eagles seen in the area.  For one hour, on specific Saturday mornings between December and March, volunteers spread out around Big Bear Lake and Baldwin Lake, watching for our national bird, and recording where and when they see the eagles.  This year 2 bald eagles were seen in December, 5 in January and February, and 3 were recorded last Saturday in the final count of 2011.  72 volunteers participated.  In the next few weeks, the bald eagles will be returning north to Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and Canada, where they spend their summers.  The residents and visitors of Big Bear will look forward to their return next winter.
