This week we’re near Westport, ON along with the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds training the technicians who will be out on some of Ontario’s lakes this summer surveying shorelines as part of the Love Your Lake program.
David Browne, Director of Conservation from the Canadian Wildlife Federation, discusses the importance of healthy shorelines.
We’re even fortunate to have Matt Smith, Aquatic Invasive Species Outreach Liaison with Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, present on some of the common invasive species found along Ontario’s shorelines and how to distinguish them from similar looking species.
Training continues over the next few days so that everyone is prepared to deliver Love Your Lake with:
- Centre for Sustainable Watersheds/Eastern Ontario
- Renfrew County Stewardship Council
- The City of Greater Sudbury
- Muskoka Watershed Council
- Lakeland Alliance
If you’re in these areas over the summer be sure to look for us!
