Announcements

 

  • The Love Your Lake Shoreline Assessment and Stewardship program is a go!  By now all property owners on the lake should have received a letter and LYL Values Survey to your home mailing address. If not, please email vp@kashwakamak.ca and we’ll get it sent to you. The assessment starts this Monday July 6th and will last about 2 weeks. Please note that no one will come on your property or ask you any questions. Just wave hello to our Love Your Lake team hard at work in their boat.  The process is simple, free and they won’t bother you at all.
    As our members know, the Kashwakamak Lake Association (KLA) has been working with Watersheds Canada to deliver this program to shoreline property owners on Kashwakamak Lake. During the summer, they will be assessing your shoreline property, following all provincial safety guidelines for COVID-19, and generating a free report for your reference.  The Love Your Lake program has been developed by two conservation non-profit charities, the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) and Watersheds Canada, and is delivered to lakes in Canada by regional partners. The goal? To improve the health of Canada’s lakes by encouraging actions by shoreline property owners that will benefit their lake.  This is the KLA’s major Lake Sustainability Implementation (hyperlink to Sustainability page) initiative for 2020.
  • All KLA 2020 Events cancelled due to COVID-19. Both the July 11th AGM and the September 19th Annual Fall Dinner and Charity Auction are cancelled this year due to COVID-19 and physical distancing requirements by Public Health.

  • KLA Update – Hazard buoys, Low Wake Markers and loon nests
  • Please note that our Lake Steward, Pete Johnson will be out on the lake in the coming weekend(s) to ensure that the KLA’s yellow hazard buoys (or minions as some fondly call them), as well as the Low Wake markers are still in their proper places. Please let us know if one is missing and/or has moved as a result of the high water levels and he will take care of it. In addition, we caution everyone on the lake to take it slowly if you’re in a boat. There are many reports of thing floating and/ or submerged just below the water. It’s also the time of year that our loons will be building their nests along the shoreline.
  • We must all be extremely cautious of boat wakes which could harm them as well as further deteriorate shoreline erosion caused by the high water. Please email Pete at lakesteward@kashwakamak.ca to report anything that needs to be fixed.  Thanks for your help and cooperation. Gord Hunter President President@Kashwakamak.ca
  • Waterfront 9-1-1 Signs available for purchase
