Love the Lake Day at Pigeon Lake

Pigeon Lake Provincial Park hosts annual celebration Aug. 10

The Pigeon Lake Watershed Association (PLWA) hosted another successful “Love the Lake Family Fun Day” on Saturday the 10th of August.

The usual and perfect venue at the Pigeon Lake Provincial Park day use and beach area made for an event that showcased everything special about Pigeon Lake and it’s watershed –the lake, green spaces, natural areas, wildlife, and stewardship of homeowners and visitors to the lake (The Pigeon Lake Watershed). Even under cloudy skies the attendance was steady and the range of ages and home location of the guests were vast. Adults and children all had a special opportunity to get their passports stamped as they visited each healthy-lake partners’ interactive exhibit.

They had fun and learned about the bugs and birds. Beaver Hill Bird Observatory brought a little feathered guest Rickie the Northern Saw-Whet owl, Alberta Parks had skins and animal tracks to touch, while the Alberta Community Bat Program gave everyone a lesson in the importance of bats. People went “batty” over that display. Mulhurst Fire Dept, Cows and Fish, Alberta Lake Management Society along with Pigeon Lake Public Library, with story book readings of our local animals, also intrigued and educated the guests of their importance and love for the lake. Whether you are local, a camper or just taking a day drive, this event always brings together the importance of stewardship.

The message of the day – help protect Pigeon Lake, make sure what you do does not end up in the lake or harm the wildlife in the watershed. For more information or if you would like to join the PLWA please contact info@plwa.ca.
