Focusing on Shoreline Events and Activities in SK/MB

vol.2, no.1 Feb/March 2001

LOOKING FOR INNOVATIVE WAYS TO ENCOURAGE SHORELINE STEWARDSHIP?

The Living by Water Project can help you run a Homesite Assessment Program for waterfront residents. Use this action_oriented service to complement your other initiatives and to keep in touch with the needs of your community. We will train an assessor from your group to visit waterfront properties and provide residents with tips for making positive changes that

will benefit them, improve water quality and increase wildlife habitat. Support from The Living by Water Project includes funding templates, conservation marketing assistance, an easy_to_use program manual, assessor training workshops, on_going support through our website, and referral assistance in recruiting waterfront residents in your area.

LOCAL STEWARDSHIP GROUP TO PROTECT THEIR SHORELINE

A recently formed partnership between Friends of Good Spirit Lake and The Living by Water Project will make program information available to cottagers and waterfront residents at Good Spirit Lake in Saskatchewan. Friends of Good Spirit Lake currently operate a water monitoring program for their lake and want to take the next step towards shoreline conservation. Plans are in the works to pilot the first SK/MB Workshop-in-a-Box this summer. Contact SK/MB office or Friends of Good Spirit Lake at 306 563-4187 for more information.

LOCAL NEWSLETTERS

We can help your group spread The Living by Water Project message to members through your newsletter. Inform the SK/MB office of the submission deadline, editor’s name and contact and we will forward a Living by Water article explaining the program, its benefits and the products and services.

Resort communities, cottage associations or stewardship groups wishing to include Living by Water products with their spring mailout should contact the SK/MB office. Available for distribution: Waterfront Living brochure, Shoreline Celebration & Restoration Month brochure, children’s Shorelines are Special Places brochure and children’s Ribbon of Life Quiz & Activity Sheet.

WORKING TOGETHER FOR HEALTHY SHORELINES

We are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership between the Living by Water Project and the Girl Guides of Canada! This winter, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed, creating what we hope will be a mutually beneficial and rewarding relationship. We look forward working with the Guides!
