Becoming a Blue Lake means that you are achieving excellence in stewardship. The label comes with access to real-time data and educational resources. The label is not provided because of a lake's environmental conditions, but instead as a testament to your care.
The Blue Lakes database helps you record data in areas of water quality, fisheries, and shoreline development on your lake
We provide educational resources to help you meet your stewardship goals. As a Blue Lake you can access Love Your Lake, Natural Edge and Shoreline Garden programs.
The Blue Lakes program is a cooperative platform...your input and that of scientists and partners will enable you to track historical and current trends on your lake
This year we are looking for lake associations across The Land Between bioregion (from Georgian Bay to the Ottawa Valley) to help us pilot our program and ensure it is effective and state of the art. See the questionnaire below for more details as to what is expected.
Candidate lakes will have active associations and boards, the ability to sample water quality according to Lake Partner Program standards, have a minimum of data for water quality and fisheries, and time for monthly meetings.
See the Questionnare for more info.
Thank you for your interest!
