So many people have devoted much of their personal and professional lives to improving the health of Lake Winnipeg – and, since 2008, the Lake Winnipeg Foundation has been celebrating these passionate individuals with our Alexander Bajkov Award.
Named in honour of the pioneering researcher of Lake Winnipeg (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.
Our Jan. 14 Love, Lake Winnipeg benefit concert saw Manitoba musicians honour classic Manitoba folk songs - and the singer-songwriter who wrote them - all in support of Manitoba's great lake. Thanks so much to the 300 people who braved the cold to join us at the West End Cultural Centre to celebrate Sol Sigurdson, listen to some amazing music and raise funds for LWF. Truly, it was a night to remember!
