“Exploring the Lakeshore Capacity Assessment”
The 7th Annual Lake Links Workshop was held on October 25th, 2008 at the Perth Lions Hall at the Perth Fairgrounds. Over 75 participants from various lake groups throughout the region learned about the effects of artificial lighting on aquatic systems and explored the Lakeshore Capacity Assessment tool that can be used to determine how much shoreline development is appropriate for a lake. Participants also had a chance for some ‘hands on’ learning about Eastern Ontario’s Species at Risk and tried their hand identifying water bugs (benthic invertebrates) and running the groundwater simulator demonstration.
