LOVE YOUR LAKE - HEALTHY SHORELINE PROJECT JUNE - JULY 2016
Our four area lakes are participating this summer in an important Ontario-wide program to assess the health our our shorelines.
The program is sponsored by the Canadian Wildlife Federation and Watersheds Canada, and is being delivered by local cottage associations (including MACA), with the help of the Coalition of Haliburton
Property Owners' Associations (CHA).
Shorelines are often referred to as the "Ribbon of Life". Up to 90% of life in and around our lakes depend on healthy, natural shorelines for food and habitat.
As well, shorelines are our best protection against the scourge of blue-green algae that has ravaged other lakes in Ontario, rendering them unsafe to swim in and decreasing property values.
Beginning in late June 2016, local volunteers will be on the water on our lakes accompanying students from Trent University who will help us assess
the health of our shorelines. Each waterfront owner will receive a free, confidential
report on the health of their shoreline with suggestions on how to keep our shorelines healthy.
