Lambton Shores Watershed Plan

<< Back to project list

The purpose of the Lambton Shores watershed plan is to improve water quality within the Lambton Shores Tributaries (specifically Shashawandah Creek and Duffus Creek), which outlet to Lake Huron in Lambton Shores, Ontario. Following the key strategies of the Lake Huron-Georgian Bay Framework for Community Action, the watershed plan builds awareness, supports community involvement, and helps to implement actions to protect and enhance the watershed.
2017 accomplishments:
-Water quality monitored at Shashawandah & Duffus Creeks
-Held a Farmshed Talk to discuss reducing erosion and soil health practices
-Provided demonstrations on benthic invertebrates (stream bugs) in drains can be indicators of soil health and farming practices
-250 Grade 3 students participated in a Soil Conservation & Sustainable Agriculture demonstration at the Forest Ag in the Classroom
-Two newsletters mailed to local farmers
-4 tree planting projects & 2 cover crop grants (440 acres had living roots in winter)
