Let’s have some fun learning about the amazing aquatic plants found in our Kawartha Lakes! When you are on your dock, out in your canoe, or quietly fishing, look down into the water. What do you see? We want to know!
You are cordially invited to join us for our 2023 Kawartha Lake Stewards Association Annual Spring Meeting! We are pleased to offer both in-person and virtual options. Our in-person meeting will be held at the Buckhorn Community Centre, 1782 Lakehurst Rd. Buckhorn, from 10am-12pm.
April 3, 2023, 7pm at the Buckhorn Community Centre
The Buckhorn Ratepayers Association’s Spring Meeting is open to the public and will include two interesting presentations. Brittany Taylor will be conducting a sacred water circle and discussing the importance of water in First Nations’ culture. KLSA’s own Dr. Bob Bailey will be discussing KLSA’s work in the Kawarthas.
The Lake Partner Program sampling results for the summer of 2021 have now been made available and KLSA Directors C. Lee and Mike Dolbey have done an analysis of the results for the KLSA area. It is available here and on the Published Material page.
The Volunteer Instructions for E coli testing this year are available here and also on the Resources page. Note the E coli sampling dates have changes, due to the calendar shifting and the reduction to only five sample dates this year. The payment form for E coli is front and centre with new contact information, and payment is due by July 15, 2022. The SGS Lab Chain of Custody form for 2022 is available here. Please do not use CofC forms from previous years. Remember to give SGS at least 3 days notice for bottle pick up, as in 2021, due to COVID. CofC forms are provided by the lab along with the bottles. Email contact information is provided for SGS Lakefield on the Annex A page of the instructions. All samples for 2022 are taken to the SGS Lakefield lab.
The 2021 report, “Lake Stewardship in Action” is now available here or on the Published Material page. The printed versions were received just prior to the Spring Meeting on May 14th, and are being distributed for pick up at many locations in the area. Stay tuned for an update where they are available and how to get bulk copies for distribution to your Lake Association.
