The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are a group of committed citizens whose mandate is the protection of Lake Windermere, British Columbia.
We 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.
Our activities are directed by people representing key community sectors including: local business, government, First Nations, recreation, second homeowners, local residents, youth and non-government organizations.
We are currently directing lake water quality monitoring and conducting education and stewardship programs within the community. We also encourage the implementation of policies & guidelines in the Lake Windermere Management Plan.
The Lake Windermere 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.
