With the onset of climate change, our lake will become warmer. Potentially, that will transform Miller Lake and the surrounding forest in ways that are threatening to environmental health and property values.
The continuing reduction in funding to the Ministry of Natural Resources means that our local community has to be more involved in monitoring the effects on our area. Members of our group can be the eyes and ears that report changes when they occur.
If you notice things in the environment that are unusual, please email our Water Steward. Odd things could be birds that aren't normally on the lake, or algae blooms, or an absence of frogs, or a new growth of phragmites - anything that is typically not here or is suddenly not here when it should be.
The Water Steward will track this data and report trends to the MNR. Thanks!
