Recreational Lakes and Algae Survey

Queen’s University is conducting a joint survey with The Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, the Muskoka Watershed Council, the Federation of Cottagers’ Associations (FOCA), and Nipissing University that aims to explore cottage owners’ perceptions of the health of Ontario’s recreational lakes in your region. 

The study’s goal is to address the overall health of lakes in Ontario. The opinions and insights of the residents and cottage owners in your region are critical to the data that is gathered.

Based on a similar study conducted by the MOECC in 1985-1986, the 2017 Recreational Lakes and Algae Survey will assess residents' and cottager owners’ perceptions of lakes with filamentous taste, odour-producing algae and blue-green algae. It will also gather data on how the algae has progressed since 1985, and explore the impacts it has had on the quality of the water, and on residents' use and enjoyment of the lakes.

Wollaston Library Survey

The Board and Staff of the Wollaston Public Library are planning for the future. We would like to hear from members of the Wollaston Lake Home and Cottage Association about what they think the library needs so it can better serve the community.

Please help us out with your ideas on how to make it the best it can be.  The answers to this survey will be used to create a strategic plan for 2017-2020. The Board has agreed that the physical space for the library is a priority. The current portable is at least 40 years old. It has no running water, poor insulation and wiring.  We need your input to help us address this challenge. Thanks for taking a few minutes to help build the library Wollaston deserves.
