The Stewardship Pillar continues to foster relationships with other watershed groups to insert our voice in the provincial networks relating to water policy. We have developed and completed a best practices survey that was administered to all of the lake associations at the AGM in 2018. We are currently collaborating with the Canadian Council of Invasive Species, the New Brunswick Environmental Network and the Nature Conservancy of Canada to continue to build capacity that prevents the spread of invasive species. By promoting outreach and engagement initiatives, the stewardship pillar will help to incentivize other lakes to join us. We continue to hold two annual general meetings (in Spring and in Fall) as well as regular executive council meetings to move our mandates forward. In 2019 we will aim to increase our lake membership, encourage education and awareness guides and develop a “Best Practices Guide” to be dispersed among members.
