Friends of Kootenay Lake hosting two-day lake keepers course

Web Lead

Kootenay Lake is known for its pristine waters, abundant wildlife and beautiful people. Friends of Kootenay Lake (FOKL) is a newly-formed lake stewardship group that brings Kootenay Lake communities together to protect the ecological, cultural values of the lake, while supporting economic and recreational uses.

It is offering a lake keepers course on Aug. 25 and 26 at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park, a two-day course for the curious and passionate lake steward. Certified instructors will show you the basics of limnology (study of fresh water). Then you will get your feet wet conducting water science on Kootenay Lake.

The course is $50 (or pay as you can), and there are only a few spots left so pre-registration is essential. All equipment is provided and lunch is on FOKL.
