Second Award In Three Years.
This is the second time in three years that Musselman’s Lake Residents have been recognized by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSCRA) for their fine work. In 2008 the Town received an award for initiating the Musselman’s Lake Stewardship plan which some residents of the Lake actively participated in drafting as members of the Technical Working Group. This is quite an achievement for our area as these recognition awards are not easy to come by.
This year the LSRCA has awarded the MLRA a Water Conservation Award for the environmental work that has been done in our community. Rick Wigmore who is the President of the MLRA says “The MLRA received this award on behalf of the many residents of the Lake who not only support but also participate in our Annual Earth Day Community Spring Clean Event which has become a template for other communities to follow.”
Many thanks have to go out to not only the residents who participate but also to Cedar Beach (Kyle Jenkin and Janet Davies) who donate not only the site for us to use but also equipment and staff. Everyone please make sure you thank Councillor Phil Bannon for his tireless support of our Earth Day event. He is already working with the MLRA on how to make the 2012 event even better.
Nature is truly amazing. If you give her a helping hand it she will never stop repaying you for your effort.
