A question was raised at the annual meeting about all the Canadian Geese on the lake and if anything can be done or is being done by the PLA or Province Lake Golf to help minimize them. Unfortunately, like ducks, the Canadian Goose is a protected migratory bird and can only be hunted with a hunting license and stamp during the normal hunting season or with a Fedreal permit. So, the short answer is that the PLA or golf course isn’t actively doing anything.
There are several things that we can do without a license or permit such as ….
DON’T FEED THEM!
Scare them off with loud noises.
Block their view of lawns
As part of the PLA’s mission we are to educate and communicate with our members and community information for the well being of the lake and the habitat of the lake. As such, attached are a couple of documents for your reading pleasure that explains these majestic birds and things that can be done. One is from NH DES and one from NH Lakes. Note that most of this applies to ducks as well as they can cause water quality issues.
