Lake Scugog Conference - May 8, 2008

The Lake Scugog Conference was held May 8, 2008 with representatives from several Government Agencies (Federal, Provincial and Municipal) as well as Local Groups and individuals in attendance. It was an important opportunity to have all the stakeholders at the conference informing each other on their initiatives currently underway and sharing their perspectives on the resource.

Together, we accomplished our goals of having a greater understanding of the roles and responsibilities of each stakeholder and developed a sense of the actions that are required to fix the lake.
