When you look out over the lake and see the calm surface, it seems so still, like glass, like there&rsquo;s nothing happening. Take a closer look --- under the surface there is abundant life: large fish, minnows, water bugs, small shrimp, zooplankton. It&rsquo;s a busy aquatic world, summer and winter. There&rsquo;s a lot of Action &ndash; Just like the aquatic creatures that we don&rsquo;t notice until we look, much work is happening to address blue-green algae at Pigeon Lake. We&r... More...

Contributing, participating are the activities of states-men and -women who understand their role in the region goes much beyond the decision-making at a Council table --- their participation in the region has far greater symbolic weight: those who act in Unity and Agreement will bear much fruit for all regional residents.

APLM - Working Together

Posted on <abbr class='updated published' itemprop='datePublished' title='20140904'>September 04, 2014 - over 4 years</abbr> ago

A past member of the Sylvan Lake Management Society, another regional group like APLM, said, &ldquo;When you live on a lake it only makes sense to work together &ndash; no one municipality can make a decision without the others bearing the consequences. You all have a role in lake management and stewardship.&rdquo; (Bev Anderson from SV Norglenwold, Exec Dir of ASVA)
