Located in Port Perry this sign fits right in with the decor of the town. It wasn't the sign that caught my attention but rather the pole with the beaver on it.

Tern Nesting Reef Raft

Andy | Tuesday, May 17, 2011 | Best Blogger Tips

Historically, the common tern population in Frenchman’s Bay thrived, but as recently as the 1970’s, it began decreasing due to the loss of suitable habitat. As a result, in 1999, two tern reef rafts were installed, aimed at providing nesting habitat. In this photo the raft is being cleaned and repaired in anticipation of the returning terns.
