The 2017 Muskoka Stewardship Conference was 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.


Participants at the conference learned why algae are important, how algae in Muskoka’s lakes are changing, as well as what they can do to help protect Muskoka’s lakes from nuisance algal blooms.




The 2017 Muskoka Stewardship Conference was possible because of the support provided by a number of organizations, including the Lake of Bays Association (Keynote Sponsor) and the Township of Muskoka Lakes (Facility Sponsor). Learn more about all of the 2017 sponsors and supporters.




View the presentations given by the excellent lineup of speakers at the 2017 Muskoka Stewardship Conference, including the keynote speaker, Dr. Charles Trick, the Beryl Ivey Chair in Ecosystem Health at the University of Western Ontario.
