Walk for Water 2016

Walk for Water is the largest grassroots fundraising event in support of a healthy Lake Winnipeg. For many lake-lovers, participating has become an annual family tradition.

Three walks are being held this season in Dunnottar (July 24), Gimli (Aug. 7) and Victoria Beach (Aug. 7), organized by community volunteers with support from LWF. Proceeds are used to translate science into solutions: funding research, training citizen scientists, educating students and community groups, and addressing the root causes of harmful algae blooms by advancing the eight actions of the Lake Winnipeg Health Plan...

On July 19, we'll be heading to the Dunnottar Community Club to help clean the beach.

Join us at 10 a.m. to learn more about zebra mussels and the importance of pollution-free beaches and lakes!
