Do you or someone you know have a cottage in Muskoka? Perhaps you live here or are fortunate enough to visit. If so, you know what a precious place Muskoka is. Iconic, even. With 1600+ lakes within the watersheds of Muskoka, we have a significant proportion of freshwater resources in Ontario, water that eventually finds its way to the Great Lakes, water that brings joy to 10’s of thousands of people, water that is both life and livelihood.
Yet Muskoka is also a vulnerable place and can be very susceptible to environmental impacts, including those brought about by climate change. One of our goals at Friends of the Muskoka Watershed is to find better, faster, more comprehensive ways to evaluate and track the health of our freshwater lakes and rivers. We believe we have found just such a way, and with your help, we will put Muskoka on the forefront of global freshwater health research, research which will benefit Muskoka, Canada, and beyond.
