Shoreline Naturalization on Robinson Property Completed

Despite some unexpected delays the LOBA grant for the Shoreline Naturalization planting of the Robinson’s property was finished in August. Huge thanks go to Northway Gardeners for providing us with a great collection of healthy indigenous plants. Special thanks also go out to the Northway Gardeners workers and our superb volunteers, Dennis Rolland, Chris Rolland and Ken Hilliard. What an amazing, hard working crew they were! The Robinson’s reported that, “This was a pretty big project for certain. Bill and I have appreciated everything you have done. Thanks very much to yourself and to the LOBA. Our property is going to benefit from this planting for years to come.”

For more information about the benefits of, and how-to tips on Shoreline Naturalization check out these resources from the Muskoka Watershed Council:

In our last Newsflash we mistakenly reported that Helena Renwick had been elected to a District Councillor seat in the Town of Huntsville. The three District Councillors are Nancy Alcock, Brian Thompson and Tim Withey. We apologize for any confusion.

The purpose of the Lake of Bays Association is to promote, sustain and enhance a clean and healthy natural environment, a well serviced community and a safe and peaceful Lake of Bays.
