Letter From The President
Hello to our members,
Hopefully, everyone has had a chance to enjoy this beautiful spring weather. We have been busy as an association since our last meeting and have one important update I wanted to share.
I know that our membership has an interest environmental stewardship and how we can best protect the lake. We have joined a new association started by the folks at the Near North Enviro-Education Centre (https://www.nneec.ca/) that is focused on the Almaguin Highlands Watershed and this association’s goal is to share best practices as it pertains to environmental stewardship.
Our most recent meeting had a focus on Phragmites, an invasive species, that seems to have taken over some of our neighboring lakes. The best defense against Phragmites is early detection as it can quickly spread and kill all the local plants and invade habitats for many species.
I encourage the members to check out this website: https://www.ontario.ca/page/phragmites-fact-sheet and see if you can identify anything that resembles Phragmites anywhere on your lakefront or water areas. If you do notice anything that could be Phragmites send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have some resources and folks who can come out to help us determine if we have Phragmites on the lake and how we can tackle it before it’s too late.
Also, as a last note, we are hoping to plan a contact- free event of some kind before the end of summer 2021. If you have any ideas or have seen other pandemic-safe events we would love to hear from you! Getting everyone connected in a safe way is a goal for us in 2021.
Thanks, and hope to see everyone soon.
