Please see the following invitation from the New Brunswick Alliance of Lake Associations (NBALA):
The New Brunswick Alliance of Lake Associations will be holding the biennial conference on lake health on February 25, 2023 (10 am to 12:30; ZOOM). The theme this year is “Living by the Lake”. The challenge of living by the lake is to find a balance between enjoying the natural beauty and recreational opportunities while also protecting the fragile ecosystem of the lake. Whether a property owner is new to lake living or a generational cottage/home owner, we need to create an understanding that all human activity has the potential to impact lake health and this is amplified by the increase in water temperature secondary to climate change. Topics to be explored will include understanding water quality monitoring in relation to lake health; impact of development on shoreline management/remediation; protecting the role of wetlands in promoting biodiversity; and the impact of recreational activity on aquatic wildlife. A detailed program will be provided once speakers are confirmed.
