Watersheds Canada is excited to announce the fourth webinar in the Freshwater Stewardship Community‘s series – “Enhancing and Restoring Critical Fish Habitat”. This webinar will take place on Wednesday, March 24th at 2pm EST and registration is free. The webinar recording will be available on Watersheds Canada’s YouTube channel.
With the steady increase in development along Canada’s lake and rivers, critical fish habitat is being compromised and degraded. In this free webinar, Melissa will provide information and resources for community groups and property owners to restore and enhance local fish habitat. Melissa will unveil the new, free Fish Habitat Enhancement Toolkit created by the Lanark County Stewardship Council and Watersheds Canada. She will also discuss Quinte Conservation and Watersheds Canada’s current Pugnose Shiner Landowner Engagement and Shoreline Habitat Restoration Project being delivered on West Lake, East Lake, and Wellers Bay.
