LWF's 2017 AGM

You are here

You’re invited to the Lake Winnipeg Foundation’s upcoming Annual General Meeting, taking place on Wednesday April 26, 2017, at 7 p.m., at FortWhyte Alive (1961 McCreary Rd in Winnipeg).

This year we’ll be joined by guest speaker Dr. Michael Rennie, Canada Research Chair in Aquatic Ecology and Fisheries at Lakehead University and a researcher at IISD Experimental Lakes Area. He will share the outcomes of his recent research on microplastics pollution in Lake Winnipeg – a groundbreaking study funded in part by LWF’s grants program. We’ll also be sharing more information about our community-based monitoring activities, and how citizen scientists across Manitoba are helping to identify phosphorus hotspots and inform land-management decisions.

LWF’s 2016 annual report will be available online for your review on April 19th, 2017. Members in good standing will elect LWF’s 2017/18 board of directors at the AGM. If you are unsure of the status of your membership, please don’t hesitate to call us at the LWF office, at (204) 956-0436 – we’re happy to help!

Our AGM is a great opportunity to celebrate our achievements, learn about future plans and enjoy the company of fellow members. We look forward to seeing you on April 26th!

LWF publishes a newsletter, The Watershed Observer, twice a year. Our most recent edition includes information on our emerging community-based monitoring network, details about groundbreaking microplastics research made possible through our grants program, and helpful tips on how you can speak up for water by reaching out to decision makers.
