Fireworks & Noise Pollution

FIREWORKS and NOISE POLLUTION: Did you know that there are fines for fireworks? See chart appended. Fireworks have extremely harmful effects on Lake Mazinaw's health. They cause a great amount of fear, stress and anxiety in wild animals, not to mention it is a fire hazard and produces chemical and mineral pollutants when set off. Birds and mammals will abandon their nests, leaving their defenceless babies behind. The panic of the ordeal can cause disorientation, decreasing the ability for wildlife to locate their homes. It's not just fireworks that harms Lake Mazinaw - motorized vehicles, watercraft and human disturbance also play a part. Human-generated noise has negative impacts on the communication, distribution, foraging, reproduction and homeostasis of a range of species, including amphibians, arthropods, birds, fish, mammals, molluscs and reptilians. Refraining from fireworks and other recreational noise pollution is a 'SMART' goal for our lake, as defined by the Blue Lakes Program (explained in our Spring Newsletter) and meets our Board mandate to promote and protect the health of the Lake.
