    Representatives from the Pigeon Lake Watershed Association (PLWA) & the Association of Pigeon Lake Municipalities (APLM) were delighted to be presented with a cheque from local MLA Diana McQueen on behalf of the Culture ministry, Monday, September 23rd in Calmar for $35,000 of "matching" funds from the Community Initiatives Fund to continue the work on the Pigeon Lake Watershed Management Plan.

    Together PLWA and APLM will work to raise matching funds for the PLWMP and continue working together with the watershed community and interested stakeholders to develop recommendations of best practices and plans to be implemented in the watershed, to minimize the nutrients going into the lake and to enhance the health of the lake and its watershed.

     The PLWMP committees are working through watershed topics to promote the watershed's natural environment and water quality by recommending action-oriented watershed policies and best practices that support the long term health, protection and restoration of the watershed, which in turn will benefit the lake.  Find more information about the plan at www.plwmp.ca
