Land & Water Stewardship in Eastern Georgian Bay

<< Back to project list

Property owners play an important role in stewardship of the land and water in the Georgian Bay Mnidoo Gamii Biosphere region. Building on the recent relaunch of the Life on the Bay Stewardship Guide and accompanying virtual stewardship party, GBB hosted an in-person workshop and shoreline walk with property owners. The event highlighted best management practices for reducing nutrient and sediment inputs, protecting biodiversity, and enhancing habitats. Additional walks were held throughout the summer focusing on topics like reptiles at risk and invasive species.

Another part of this work involves continuing to work with partners along eastern Georgian Bay to explore the collaborative development of a fisheries stewardship framework for the coast. Meetings have continued on an individual basis as GBB works on building relationships with partners.
