Thank you to our citizen scientist volunteer, Jeanette Hendricks. Jeanette is a long-time resident who enjoys paddling from spring until fall, even using her kayak as an ice breaker from time to time. She joined us today to better understand water monitoring for her own data collection on Lake Lillian.

Sept. 14 marked the last day of lake sampling for this year. We still have some fall sampling to wrap up our season but will be retreating into our office for the fall and winter to analyze the data. Save the date, Oct. 15, for our Learn About Your Lake event, where we will share the preliminary findings and answer questions about Lake Windermere and water monitoring. Follow us on social media @LakeAmbassadors for more details.

While we have no more opportunities to sample this season, if you would like to join us in the future or learn more about our programs, get in touch at [email protected] or phone (250) 341-6898.

The Lake Windermere Ambassadors would like to thank the Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Valley Community Foundation, Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund, Real Estate Foundation, BC Gaming Grants, District of Invermere, Regional District of East Kootenay and community donors for supporting our 2021 programming.
