The Dog Lake Association is now the Dog and Cranberry Lakes Association
The Mission of the Dog and Cranberry Lakes Association is:
To provide ongoing stewardship of the Lakes and surrounding environment for present and future generations.
While the mission has remains the same we have expanded to includes Cranberry Lake. Changes to the website will be made and announced over the next several months to reflect the association's new area and membership
Membership in the Dog and Cranberry Lakes Association (DCLA) is important. The association supports many activities that are crucial to the health and well being of our beautiful lakes and benefits not only the people who live in this special area but also those that visit
This year is very exciting as we embark on the development of the Lake Health Action Plan, read more about this in our News section of this website.
We are an active Board that has monthly board meetings where we address issues that are important to our members and develop associated action plans. We liaise with other lake associations, government organizations (such as the Ministry or Environment, Conservation and Parks), as well as municipal departments to ensure accountability for our environment. Other activities include “meet the candidates” events in our municipality and attending workshops and presentations to keep up to date on issues related to our mandate.
Our Water Quality Committee has developed contacts with the Kingston, Frontenac Lennox and Addington Health Unit, the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority and the Queen’s Beaty Research Water Centre and thus is able to share information about the conditions of our lake and how to keep it healthy.
We hold the annual summer BBQ and organize community events that help us to meet our “Dog and Cranberry Lake neighbours”. It’s educational, it’s social and it’s necessary to support our ongoing stewardship of the lake and the surrounding environment for present and future generations.
Our lake needs your support and expertise as a volunteer!
