Saturday July 20nd 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon Sturgeon Point Church
SPA is hosting the third annual Environment Information Session to present topics we think will be of interest to the residents of Sturgeon Point. The Kawartha Lakes has a diverse environment from the Canadian Shield to the St Lawrence Lowlands, “The Land Between”, and the quality of this environment is of major importance to us all. This session will feature the following guest speakers and topics
Mr David Pridham Kawartha Lakes Conservation Up-date on the Sturgeon Lake Management Plan
This is a very ambitious program to document the lake and near-shore characteristics and to develop recommendations that will guide land-use planning in the area.
Ms Samantha Burke Graduate student Trent University Benthic macro invertebrates as indicators of water quality plus a brief introduction to the Kawartha Lakes Steward Association document ‘The Algae of the Kawartha Lakes’
Copies of the ‘The Algae of the Kawartha Lakes’ will be available at the Session.
Samantha will describe how studying the critters in the water tells us a lot about the health of the lake. There will be a quiz at the end to see how many know what Benthic macro invertebrates are. Hint GOOGLE it
Chris Appleton Treasurer of Kawartha Lakes Steward Association and Resident of Sturgeon Point Outline of the Objectives and Activities of the Kawartha Lakes Steward Association (KLSA)
