24 Feb Registration is open for Living Lakes Canada 3rd Annual Lake Blitz
Do you love your local lakes and want to help protect them for future generations?
Lakes in Canada are threatened by habitat loss, invasive species, pollution and climate impacts like rising water temperatures. Dip your toes into water monitoring this summer and be part of the solution. Join the Living Lakes Canada network of volunteer lake monitors and track various impacts at a lake you love by registering for the 3rd Annual National Lake Blitz.
Each volunteer will receive a free Lake Blitz Standard Kit containing a thermometer, tape measure, field guide, and datasheets. New this year, a Lake Blitz Level 2 Kit will be available for purchase to allow enthusiastic volunteers to measure additional parameters including pH and water clarity. Living Lakes Canada will provide free online training on how to monitor your local lake, from data collection to data entry. All the lake data that you’ll help to collect this year will be uploaded to the Lake Blitz Observation Map.
All volunteers will also be invited to Monthly Meet-ups, online workshops featuring expert guest speakers who will be presenting on a range of topics relevant to lake monitoring. Lake Blitz registration closes May 1st or when the supply of Lake Blitz Kits runs out, so register today and join Living Lakes Canada in getting outside this summer and helping protect lakes across Canada.
