The Christina Lake Stewardship Society is hosting the Christina Lake Watershed Management annual review on Dec. 4.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Christina Lake Community Hall on 90 Park Road.

Facilitators are Grace McGregor, RDKB Area C director, and Brenda LacCroix, stewardship coordinator/project manager for the Christina Lake Stewardship Society.

Attending the review will be stakeholders including community members and all levels of government.

“We put forward all the information we’ve collected throughout the year such as water quality data, fisheries numeration data,” said LaCroix. “Other things that have come up are issues within our watership management plan whether they were short-term or long-term implementation strategies.”

There will be several speakers at the event including Mike Sokal, environmental impact biologist, Environmental Protection Division for the Ministry of Environment, who will speak on this year’s sampling results and future steps for the program; Andy Gilmore, scuba diver crew supervisor, Environmental Services – RDKB, who will present a summary of the Eurasian Water milfoil program for 2013; and Lisa Tedesco, Boundary Invasive Species Society director, who will be presenting information on what was done this year in the Christina Lake area and seeking input on priorities for 2014.

LaCroix said she will be giving a summary about stewardship society highlights such as the youth program and the interpretive gallery.

The event will also be videotaped so people who cannot attend can view the highlights at a later date.

Towards the end, there will be an open forum where attendees can ask further questions and offer suggestions and ideas of how to help protect the watershed.
