The 2017 Muskoka Stewardship Conference is organized by the Muskoka Watershed Council and The District Municipality of Muskoka with support from a variety of sponsors.



2017 Theme: 50 Shades of Green

All of our lakes naturally contain algae. Without algae, lakes would be essentially dead, unable to sustain fish and other creatures. Different species of algae become abundant at different times of the year, and if conditions are ideal, they can form a bloom.


Why are algae important, and how are algae in Muskoka’s lakes changing? What can you do to help protect Muskoka’s lakes from nuisance algal blooms? Join us this May to learn all about algae.




Registration includes refreshments and lunch.

  • $60 until April 15th
  • $75 after April 15th
  • $45 for students
