We’re very excited to announce that the Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the government of Ontario, approved our application for a grant to help us with our efforts to control the spread of Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM) in Farlain Lake over the next three years! Over the past five years, we have worked hard to develop strategies to control the infestation of this very aggressive aquatic plant based on extensive research, consultation, networking and experience. The grant will help provide us with the resources we needed to implement our Integrated Management Plan through the purchase of equipment, supplies and services as well as ongoing education and research needed to manage the EWM and protect the future of our lake. It’s hoped that our learning and experience will also help other communities dealing with the EWM.
