This summer we were fortunate to have aspiring young seventeen-year-old conservationists, known as Stewardship Rangers employed by the MNRF, assist us with the building of wood duck nesting boxes that were strategically placed along our shores. Wood ducks were once an endangered species and hopefully, these boxes built from pieces of donated wood scraps will do the job to help further conserve the species.

The second project included doing a bioblitz of the aquatic plants growing in Greenan and Lepine. It was a daunting task for all lakes to be done this summer. So we look forward to next year to the completion of Carson and Trout lakes. The aquatic plant inventory can be viewed in this post. Aquatic Plants in Our Lakes
