The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are a group of committed citizens whose mandate is the protection of Lake Windermere, British Columbia. The Ambassadors have a vision of an ecologically healthy Lake Windermere with balanced management approaches that support recreation and traditional uses, high fish and wildlife values, and economic prosperity in the region.

The Ambassadors’ activities are directed by people representing key community sectors including: business, government, First Nations, recreation, second homeowners, local residents, youth and non-government organizations.

The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are currently directing lake water quality monitoring and conducting education and stewardship programs. They also encourage the implementation of policies & guidelines in the Lake Windermere Management Plan.

The Ambassadors have received accolades for their collaborative initiatives and are being used as a model for community-based water stewardship by Living Lakes International, Living Lakes Network Canada, and Friends of Kootenay Lake.
