As we head into spring, the warmer weather brings with it big changes for the Lake WindermereAmbassadors. While current program coordinator, Shannon McGinty prepares to welcome a new water steward into the world, acting program coordinator, Georgia Peck, will be taking the helm of the Ambassadors’ ship! For the remainder of the year, the Lake Windermere Ambassadors – led by the board of directors and Peck and supported by a community of volunteers – will continue to advocate for the health of Lake Windermere including the natural and recreational resources it provides.
Consistent water sampling, education and community outreach will persist, more than likely at a virtual level for the next few months, highlighting the ecological and economic importance of Lake Windermere. Upcoming projects include foreshore mapping, promotion of public access around the lake, and compiling current and historical data into a detailed State of the Lake Report.
Peck, who studied wildlife conservation back in Ontario, moved to the valley in November 2018 and was immediately drawn to the lake for its canoeing and birding opportunities.
“I am very much looking forward to working with such a supportive community and enjoying all thewonderful benefits the lake has to offer,” she said.
