Education Night 2016

Conservation Biologist Speaks at Friends of the Lake Education Night

The BLA’s Friends of the Lake committee (FotL) were pleased to host their annual Education Night on the traditional third Thursday, July 21st, at the Perth Rd. United Church Hall. Guest speaker Lesley Rudy, a Kingston area conservation biologist, gave us an illuminating presentation about native plants that can enrich and beautify our lakeside shores and gardens. Lesley gave us valuable insights into native plant species that can provide natural habitat while also protecting our watershed from polluting runoffs. Those in attendance were pleased to learn first hand how we can take direct actions to make a real difference to our lake water quality. As it turns out many of us already realize that the new look is “natural” and Lesley provided us with resources to learn how to establish or reinstate natural water frontage and where to find local sources of indigenous plants. FotL thanks Lesley Rudy for speaking at our Education Night and encourages all to use the resources listed below to improve their own environs and, if professional help is desired, to contact Lesley through her web info. /
