Volunteer for canoe-route maintenance

Friends of Temagami is helping with maintenance of portages and campsites this summer and put out a call for volunteers.

"If you are interested in doing portage clearing and campsite cleaning on your next trip, we want to hear from you," says organizer Bob Olajos.

The group is partnered with MNR and Ontario Parks through the Temagami Crown Land Backcountry Maintenance Partnership.

The Partnership provides liability and accident insurance and permits. The flexible program allows volunteers to set their own schedule.

"Some groups may want to do just a little cleanup as they travel a well-used route," says Olajos, "while others many want to do more involved work on a less-travelled route."

FOT hopes to have the first volunteers out in early July.

To get involved or for more information, contact Bob Olajos at friendsoftemagami@gmail.com or call 705-499-0692.

Fire ban lifted

Today MNR lifted the prohibition on open fires in Temagami and Sudbury districts. The hazard warning was lowered to moderate after rain over the weekend and a drop in temperatures.

This ban cancellation only applies to Crown and provincial park lands. Municipalities may maintain their own bans, which only apply to private land.

Northern Temagami out of fire ban area

Today MNR lifted the prohibition on open fires in most of Northeastern Ontario, but left most of Temagami under the ban. South of Lady Evelyn Lake continues under the fire restriction order.

Rain and lower temperatures to the north reduced the fire hazard there.
