As the summer draws to a close, so does our Lake Winnipeg Memories Gallery in Albert Beach. Join us for our closing gala evening, Bow Ties and Board Shorts, and help us close out the space with food, drinks and one last walk down memory lane!

 

For the third year in a row, a group of amateur cyclists are challenging themselves to complete an ambitious, three-day, 500 km self-supported road trip from Winnipeg. Man. to the IISD-Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA) research facility in northwest Ontario.

Riders are paying their own expenses while accepting financial pledges for their efforts. All funds raised will be donated to the Lake Winnipeg Foundation (LWF) to support the expansion of the Lake Winnipeg Community-Based Monitoring (CBM) Network.

Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.org!

CBM engages citizen volunteers in the collection of water samples which are then analyzed...

The LWF office will be closed on Monday, Sept. 4. We will re-open on Tuesday. Sept, 5. Have a great long weekend!
