COVID-19 UPDATES:​

 

NATURAL EDGE PROGRAM 2020 - On hold due to COVID-19

  • As many of our CLA members are aware, we have been recognizing some outstanding developed and undeveloped lakefront properties over the last 7-8 years.

  • For 2020, we are changing our focus slightly and partnering with Watershed Canada to sponsor the Natural Edge Program.  The goal of this program is to protect our lake by establishing "natural shorelines".

  • A team of environmental experts will do a site inspection of a lakefront property, make some recommendations for specific plants based on your land characteristics and  height preferences, create a site plan and then place an order for the healthy plants and materials.  The CLA will also be looking at subsidizing the costs of the plantings and materials. 

  • If you have a property on the lake that you would like us to consider for this new project, please contact CLA Director Jay Kyle (jay.kyle0213@gmail.com) for a site inspection to consider your request.
