Friends of Kootenay Lake now a society

After 3½ years of service, the Friends of Kootenay Lake has become an official society.

A group dedicated to improving the health and stewardship of Kootenay Lake is now a registered society.

After years of service, the Friends of Kootenay Lake has become an official society.

Under the diligent facilitation of Claire de la Salle, the hard work of an active steering committee and hundreds of dedicated members and volunteers, the group has evolved into the Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society.

Since its inception in 2012 the society has devoted its efforts to improve the health and stewardship of Kootenay Lake through monitoring, habitat restoration, capacity building and the empowerment of local communities and stakeholders. The society has delivered many successful projects and events around our many lake communities, that have inspired folks to be true stewards of this vast and integral body of water.

The Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society thanks all volunteers and members who have supported, shown interest and given time to volunteer for important projects and events.

Every lakeside community member has a role to play in protecting the lake’s immense value.

If you care about Kootenay Lake and want to preserve its natural values for generations to come, you can check friendsofkootenaylake.ca and sign up for eNews, events and actions taking place over the next few months, or you can contact the society with specific questions about its programs.
