Join us at FortWhyte Alive on Sunday, June 10, for MEC's Paddlefest!
This free event features information sessions on kayaking, canoeing and SUP, as well as kids’ activities and the newest gear up for grabs.
Come by our table to say hi! We’ll be there all day, selling some of our unique fundraising merchandise, and sharing we’ve been doing lately to restore and protect the health of Lake Winnipeg (which is a great place to paddle!).

All summer long we’ve been celebrating local beer and local lakes, partnering with local craft breweries to showcase limited-edition, lake-themed brews.
This collaborative beer series continues with September’s Boardwalk Belgian Pale Ale, created by our friends at PEG Beer Co.
Boardwalk Belgian Pale Ale is fruity with a slight pepper spice – a balanced beer that finishes dry and crisp. Try it while supplies last by visiting PEG Beer Co.’s brew pub, located at 125 Pacific Ave. in Winnipeg’s Exchange District.
Starting on Wednesday, Sept. 20, you’ll also be able to find Boardwalk Belgian Pale...
Another busy summer is coming to a close. As always, we had a great time visiting lakeside communities, taking part in events (and hosting our own!) and meeting the many supporters whose passion and commitment drive our foundation and make a healthy Lake Winnipeg possible. Here are just a few shots from the 2017 summer season.
WOW. Victoria Beach broke its own record with 181 walkers participating in this year's event! Together, these passionate lake-lovers raised a whopping $21,696 - and the pledges are still pouring in! We are so very grateful for the amazing community support. Way to go, VB!
A big thank you to lake-lovers from the community of Dunnottar who braved the heat to take part in our 2017 Walk for Water. Together, we raised $5,384 (and counting!) in support of a healthy Lake Winnipeg!
Come find us at the Lakeshore Heights Family Fun Day! This event takes place on Saturday, July 8, at the covered community structure on West Street (at Lakeview Ave). Stop by our table to learn more about Lake Winnipeg and what we're doing to protect it. We'll also have some of our unique fundraising products with us!
