Lake Stewardship is about collectively taking care of our lakes, to keep them healthy for future generations to enjoy. Everyone has a role to play in protecting the water quality of our lakes. The City encourages residents around lakes to form lake stewardship groups that:
- Advocate for local lakes and raise awareness of lake issues in the community.
- Develop a communications network for lake issues.
- Launch fund-raising events.
- Gather information, educational materials and collect data on a range of lake concerns.
- Gain a historical perspective from long-time residents.
- Network with other lake organizations.
