2014 Symposium on Cyanobacteria


As a member of the Chamcook Watershed Landowners' Association you are
invited to attend the international symposium on cyanobacteria in lakes,
to be held Saturday, October 25th at The Algonquin Resort in Saint
Andrews By-The-Sea. CWLA is proud to be organizing the event in
partnership with Eastern Charlotte Waterways and the New Brunswick
Alliance of Lake Associations. The event has been made possible by the
generous support of New Brunswick's Environment Trust Fund.

The visiting speakers include Dr. Ken Wagner, the owner of Water
Resource Services, a consulting company focused on water supply
protection and lake management. Dr. Wagner has a Ph. D. in Natural
Resource Management from Cornell University. He is a former President of
the North American Lake Management Society and the current
Editor-in-Chief of Lake and Reservoir Management.

Also scheduled to speak is Dr. Holly Ewing, a professor of Environmental
Studies at Bates College in Maine. She has co-authored a collection of
academic papers that concern cyanobacteria blooms throughout New
England, with a focus on the same species and environmental conditions
found here in New Brunswick.

The agenda has been attached for your interest. There is no charge to
attend the event and it is open to the public. Lunch will be provided to
anyone who RSVPs prior to Tuesday, October 21st. Those interested in

CHAMCOOK – The Chamcook Watershed Landowners’ Association (CWLA) would like to announce the launch of its 2nd annual kayak raffle. The prize is a 15’ sit-inside Summit 100X Kayak with a retail value of $499. The tickets are $5 each, and can be purchased at St. Andrews Home Hardware. The winning ticket will be selected during the organization’s annual general meeting, held at the Atlantic Salmon Federation on Saturday, July 19th.

All proceeds from the raffle will support volunteer environmental monitoring in the Chamcook Watershed.

This summer, volunteers from the CWLA will monitor the water flow between the watershed’s five lakes, the water quality in the lakes, and the abundance of cyanobacteria. Proceeds from the kayak raffle will be used to purchase the necessary equipment, ensure volunteers have the proper training, and to pay for laboratory analysis.

The kayak raffle would not be possible without the generous support of St. Andrews Home Hardware. The CWLA would also like to thank the Atlantic Salmon Federation and Eastern Charlotte Waterways for assisting with the volunteer monitoring of the Chamcook Watershed and Fundy Community Foundation for providing financial support toward the project.

The St. Andrews Home Hardware is open Monday – Saturday from 8am to 5:30pm at 189 Water Street in St. Andrews.
