We very much appreciate everyone who has liked and followed our Facebook page over the years. By doing so, you’ve given us the opportunity to share important information about freshwater stewardship, and update you on the various ways we are advocating for change and co-ordinating action to improve the health of Lake Winnipeg.
As you may be aware, Facebook has just rolled out major changes to its newsfeed. Posts from friends and family will be prioritized in your feed; posts from brands – including organizations such as LWF – will largely be removed.
Many people have devoted much of their personal and professional lives to improving the health of Lake Winnipeg. Since 2008, the Lake Winnipeg Foundation has been celebrating these passionate individuals with our Alexander Bajkov Award.
Named in honour of the pioneering researcher (his last name is pronounced “bye-cough” and you can read his bio here), this annual award is presented to a person who exemplifies Dr. Bajkov’s dedication to the understanding of Lake Winnipeg, and who demonstrates outstanding efforts to protect and restore the lake and its watershed.
