LakeWise: Invasive Species Citizen Action Project

The Invasive Species Workshop is part of the LakeWise: Invasive Species Citizen Action Project. The project is a local initiative to address critical issues threatening the ecological health of Pigeon Lake, agricultural sector, recreational value of the lake, and economic health of the region. This project is designed to empower the community with the knowledge and tools to help keep aquatic invasive species out of Pigeon Lake and to contribute to the eradication of noxious and invasive plants in the Watershed. This program is identified in the implementation priorities for community action in the Pigeon Lake Watershed Management Plan and complements the Government of Alberta’s Aquatic Invasive Species Program.

There is urgent need for this program. Alberta Environment and Parks highlights that invasive plants adapt aggressively to the Alberta landscape causing lasting damage and negatively impact property values for residents and agricultural producers. Aquatic invasive species have been identified in regions within close proximity to Pigeon Lake. Persistent and vigilant efforts are needed now, more than ever, to keep these species out.

Land Stewardship Centre's Watershed Stewardship Grant Program

PLWA wish to acknowledge the financial assistance of the Land Stewardship Centre's Watershed Stewardship Grant Program, funded by Alberta Environment and Parks, for making possible the LakeWise: Invasive Species Citizen Action Project in 2019

Land Stewardship Centre (LSC) is pleased to contribute to the delivery of this project through the Watershed Stewardship Grant Program funded by Alberta Environment and Parks. LSC is committed to working with stewardship groups to increase public awareness of the importance of the grassroots initiatives that are having a positive impact on watersheds, water quality and communities across Alberta. Opinions expressed in this workshop are those of the PLWA and not necessarily LSC's.
