Board Meeting Protocol
Lake Louise and the surrounding area are home to a great variety of wildlife and birds. It is the only known recorded freshwater nesting site for cormorants. Lake Louise is the farthest north where the cormorant is found. The nesting site is accessible by boat from all of the lodges. Bird Island is also a rare inland nesting site for gulls. The Lake Louise area is the summer home to thousands of trumpeter swans and other water fowl. Caribou often spend the winter in the area and moose are a common sight around the lake and on the Lake Louise Road.
Lake Louise is fed by small streams and run off from snow and rain. It drains into Lake Susitna, which in turn drains into Lake Tyone. Lake Tyone drains into the Tyone River which flows into the Susitna River and finally into Cook Inlet. The Susitna River travels through Devils Canyon and although a few rafts have made it through, it is extremely dangerous. The water runs so fast through the canyon that salmon cannot traverse the route. Consequently, there are no salmon in the Lake Louise basin.
Today, Lake Louise is home to several businesses, most of which are open year round. Many people now reside in the area as well as many other people have recreational and weekend homes in the area. Lake Louise, Lake Susitna and Lake Tyone have great fishing, boating, bird watching, hiking, biking, snowmachining, skiing, skating, hunting, Northern Lights viewing and is a great spot to relax and unwind. Come join us and experience real Alaska at Lake Louise’s summer and winter playground.
