"We can’t do it by ourselves. Each reserve has this whole community of stakeholders, volunteers, partners, who help support each site. That’s a strength of the program: ecological protection through the community."
Birdie Davenport, Aquatic Reserves Program Manager

The unique purpose of an aquatic reserve is not only to protect and restore its species and native habitat, but also to inspire stewardship and create education and outreach opportunities within the communities and stakeholder groups they involve.

OUR WORK includes:

  • RIPARIAN RESTORATION OF LAKE KAPOWSIN (Community Work Parties)
  • Annual LAKE KAPOWSIN DAY - fishing demonstrations, lake’s history, geology and nature, booths and displays, and many other family-friendly activities.
  • STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE MEETINGS (Guide the Management Plan)
