Pleasant Lake Protective Association has been producing a newsletter many years.

Kittie Wilson originally created ‘All Things Pleasant’ emailing news to a growing list of members about our nesting Loon family and other nature on the lake.

Kittie became an avid photographer of nature, but particularly of Loons and Loon behavior. She received the Loon Preservation Committee’s Spirit of the Loon Award and the EPA’s Meritorious Lifetime Achievement Award for her endeavors to protect loons.

Kittie passed away on May 3, 2018 and is dearly missed by the Pleasant Lake community.

In  2018, the focus of the newsletter expanded to include the watershed surrounding Pleasant Lake. The future health of the Lake depends not just on those who live on it but all who live in the watershed that surrounds it. The newsletter was renamed “The Nature of Pleasant Lake” by its current photographers and authors – Jen Esten and Jon Waage.

Part of its focus includes continuing to monitor our Loon pair and their offspring. A second focus is on learning more about the inhabitants of the Lake and Watershed. The goal is a greater appreciation of the plants and animals we share the Lake and Watershed with. The more we learn about them and what they contribute, the better we can become at stewardship of our Lake.

The Nature of Pleasant Lake is mostly produced from late Spring through early Fall, but will include important information throughout the year. You can access previous issues of the newsletter below as well as subscribe to future issues.
