At this year’s workshop, we learned how associations have recognized threats on their lakes and rivers, and what steps they have taken to address them. As well, we met the 5th recipient of the Gord Rodgers Memorial Award, Barbara King.
This event was generously funded by Cataraqui Conservation, Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, and Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations. The Lake Links 2022 planning committee included representatives from Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority, Cataraqui Conservation, Watersheds Canada, Friends of the Tay Watershed, and Lake Networking Group.
