LWF featured in national freshwater series

Algae Lake Winnipeg

LWF’s work was recently featured in an article by DeSmog Canada as part of its “Ripple Effect” series, a collection of stories about efforts to protect Canada’s fresh water.

Along with Brokenhead Ojibway Nation and the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources, LWF helped organize the gathering of First Nations mentioned in the article. We recognize that the unique and too often marginalized voices of Indigenous peoples are a vital part of any sustainable solutions for Lake Winnipeg, and we feel privileged to be able to help facilitate this process.

LWF communications director Marlo Campbell was also interviewed for the story. Click here to read what she told DeSmog about the challenges facing Lake Winnipeg – and our science-based road map to a solution.

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.
