At this year’s workshop, we celebrated 20 years of Lake Links and learned about connecting our values with the actions we take in order to protect our lakes and rivers. We revisited the Lake Protection Workbook and highlighted actions that property owners have taken. As well, we congratulated the 4th recipient of the Gord Rodgers Memorial Award, David Overholt.
This event was generously funded by the S.M. Blair Family Foundation, Cataraqui Conservation, Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, and Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations.
