This Sunday, July 10 at 11 a.m., your Limerick Waterways Ratepayers’ Association (LWRA) is presenting a very special guest speaker down at Limerick Lake Lodge. Tim Johnson, a specialist with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, will be sharing some very interesting information on invasive species and how they could impact Limerick Lake and all of the adjoining lakes.
The protection of the natural environment is one of the main reasons for the existence of your Cottagers’ Association. Understanding what might threaten our lakes and being able to identify invasive species is a first step. Knowing the vectors by which they are likely to be introduced to our waters, and steps that can be taken to prevent such invasions, could be critical to the future health of the natural environment we all love so much. Educating ourselves about potential invasive species, including aquatic plants and organisms such as the Zebra Mussell and Spiny Waterflea, plays a critical role in the long-term protection of our lake environment.
So this weekend, after your second cup of Sunday morning java has kicked in, we encourage everyone to head down to Limerick Lake Lodge to hear Tim Johnston’s presentation. You are encouraged to bring along a friend, neighbor or family member to get updated on which invasive species we may have to deal with in the future and which species may already have been identified in our region. Everyone, whether a member of the LWRA or not, is welcome and encouraged to attend. See you there!
