A Note from Beemus
"We appreciate your concern and involvement in the landscaping process. I assure you there are no safer herbicides than Roundup Custom. Roundup Custom contains none of the surfactants found in traditional Roundup which can be harmful to insects or aquatic life if applied improperly. Some may cite organic herbicides as a replacement, but all the products I know of are either heavily concentrated acids or little researched amino acids whose interaction in the environment is not well documented. I would not feel confident using a product with substantially less science and testing behind it.
 
The Center for Environmental Risk Assessment has a published fact sheet on glyphosate (http://cera-gmc.org/files/cera/GmCropDatabase/docs/htmfiles/glyphosate.htm) and references a number of regulatory agency studies in its conclusion that glyphosate is extremely safe when used properly. There has been some media attention recently regarding the International Agency for Research on Cancer's new classification for glyphosate. According to IARC glyphosate poses similar risks as coffee, aloe vera extract, and cell phones.
 
That said Bemus is always looking out for the best interests of our clients and their landscapes. If there are additional studies which contradict the existing information on glyphosate we would like to read them if they can be provided. "

BIRDS ON THE LAKE PROJECT
Former Yacht Club Commodore, Chris Holland, is heading a new and on-going project. Birds have inspired all of us ever since a dove brought back a twig from land to Noah! Birds are amazing creatures but who else can fly and what type of bird is that anyway? Studying birds (birding) is an irresistible hobby and many love to study in depth all about these beautiful animals. That is why we are putting together a little book called ‘Birds of the Hidden Lakes’. Those who want to join in are more than welcome. If you would like to learn more about the different birds and their behaviors contact Chris at chrisrholland24414@gmail.com. Please, join in on the fun.  For a list and pictures of birds found on the lake see the attached flyer.   Birds on the Lake
 
IRVINE RANCH WATER DISTRICT:  Check out the Irvine Ranch Water District website and consider a landscape renovation.  All renovations require an Home Improvement Application (HIA) for the committee to review and approve.  You can pick up an HIA at the front desk of the clubhouse.  http://www.irwd.com/
 
Attention All Homeowners:
The Golden Algae is a serious threat to our fish population. It is a microscopic algae which lives undetected until the algae blooms and releases a toxin  which kills the fish. A  foam with a golden hue may or may not appear confirming the presence of golden algae. Unfortunately, three lakes in our area are experiencing outbreaks, Eastlake Village in Yorba Linda, Rancho Santa Margarita and Lake Mission Viejo. These lakes have lost thousands of fish and are currently working diligently to stabilize their fish populations. 
 
Please be aware of the following signs of a Golden Algae bloom:
Unusual Fish Activity: The fish will seek oxygen and large numbers will remain near the surface, in the shallow water, near the aerators, or weirs. The fish will be lethargic and not dart away.
Unusual Waterfowl Activity: Increase in waterfowl population and concentration near surface fish.
The LFCA Staff is on heightened alert and will patrol the lakes several times per day. Staff is prepared to treat the areas and  if you see or suspect unusual fish orwaterfowl activity please contact the Clubhouse Front Desk at 837-6100 and provide the specific location. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Cynthia Valdes
General Manager

ATTENTION ALL BOAT OR KAYAK OWNERS!
Invasive Species Prevention Program: Before you purchase, sell and/or request to launch a new boat please be aware of the following concern. Invasive Quagga or Zebra Mussels are invading lakes and water ways throughout California. Both species can wreak havoc on the environment by disrupting the natural food chain and can contribute to the release of harmful bacteria that affect other aquatic species. The mussels can attach themselves to the hull, engine and steering components of a boat and cause damage.
 
Please be aware that Lake Forest Community Association requires a 30 day notice and inspection prior to launching a boat in our lakes.  This will include an inspection by Fernando Contreras, Association Lake Coordinator, which will include a visual inspection, questions regarding the boats origin and a request to have the boat cleaned per the Department of Fish & Game recommendations. If you sell or remove a boat including small craft, please contact the association to schedule an inspection prior to relocation or sale.  The Staff may delay the launch or sale of a boat so we encourage you to contact us prior to a planned purchase or sale. Also, please do not move kayaks or small boats between lakes. Please refer to the Department of Fish & Game website for a guide on “How to clean, drain and dry a boat” prior to a request to launch at the Beach & Tennis Club.  For questions contact: Fernando Contreras at fernando.contreras@associa.us or 949-837-6100.
