Do you live on the shorelines of Sherbrooke Lake, Fox Point Lake, or Lake Torment?
Is your shoreline lacking vegetation and suffering from erosion, compaction, or beach loss?
Then we’ve got a win-win proposition for you!
We want to give your shoreline a free landscaping makeover. We’ll work with you to select native plants that won’t obstruct your view or restrict your lake access. If beavers or deer are an issue on your property, we’ll protect your new plants. You can grab a shovel and join, or sit back and watch our Watersheds & Water Quality Team do the work!
How does this help us? Lakes in our region are increasingly suffering from algal blooms and other water quality problems. One of the best ways to protect lake health is to maintain a vegetated shoreline. Pollutants like fertilizer nutrients and bacteria are slowed, filtered, and absorbed by a well-vegetated shoreline.
This work is part of our Stewards for Freshwater: Restoring and Protecting Freshwater Ecosystems project, which is funded by Environment and Climate Change Canada’s EcoAction Program.
If you live on one of our target lakes, reach out to Kaylee MacLeod
to set up a site visit today. If you know someone on these lakes, please share this opportunity with them!
Act fast, we’re looking for the four properties that could benefit the most from a vegetated buffer!
