Lake Stewardship 

Lake Stewardship means protecting the environment for current and future generations. On our lake, this involves using volunteers and often non-legislated actions and programs. The Directors of our Conservation Association consider themselves the stewardship committee for Lake Wahwashkesh. Our specific stewardship efforts are focused on the following activities: communication, education, fish enhancement, analysis and testing of our waters, community and lake shore planning, maintaining access to our waters, support for special reserves, maintaining water levels, keeping our lake shores clean and natural, protecting endangered flora and fauna, and as individuals providing proper septic systems. This stewardship approach is the fundamental principle underlying almost all that the Lake Wah-Wash-Kesh Conservation Association does for our beautiful piece of Ontario. top ↑
