Are you interested in learning more about our lakes and how to take care of them? The Ambassadors are partnering with BCLSS to host a LakeKeepers Workshop!
This is a FREE workshop but you MUST register by September 30th to reserve your spot. There are limited spaces, register here. The workshop will be two days, with the second day being a field trip to Premiere Lake to get some hands on training! Lunches and snacks will be provided.
Since 2009, the BCLSS has offered LakeKeepers workshops that provide training and support as it relates to lake stewardship with an emphasis on lake water quality monitoring and aquatic plant surveying.
Course participants will gain a greater understanding of lake management, which will translate to an increased ability to take care of their lakes through better knowledge of watershed and land-use impacts, lake ecology, and limnology (the study of freshwater).
This course will be facilitated by Norm Zirnhelt. Norm is a biologist and was head of monitoring and impact assessment for the Ministry of Environment for over 20 years before starting an environmental consulting firm in 2010. Norm started working with volunteer lake stewards in 1982 on Dragon Lake and while at MOE he oversaw a Volunteer Lake Management Plan of over 25 lakes in the Cariboo. Norm’s dedication to volunteer stewardship is evident by his work with the BCLSS – over 10 years as President.
