  • Water quality monitoring
  • History of Kootenay Lake
  • How to get involved with stewardship on the lake
  • Local wildlife
  • Current events such as what the Kootenay Lake Partnership is doing to improved governance on the lake.

If you would like to schedule a presentation please feel free to contact us.

For information about the lake including homeowner resources please check out the Kootenay Lake Library section of the website.

Education is vital to reducing human impacts on the lake.  In the summer of 2012, we hosted a Lake Keepers Workshop this info-packed 2 day course taught residence the basics of limnology (the study of fresh water) and water quality monitoring.  If you would be interested in attending a similar event in 2013, please contact us.

Watch for a FOKL outreach booth at various community markets and festivals!
