Welcome to the Eastern Georgian Bay Stewardship Council
The Eastern Georgian Bay Stewardship Council brings stakeholders together to develop stewardship goals that will benefit Eastern Georgian Bay and works with partners to carry out projects to achieve those goals. EGBSC’s aim is to complement the work of other organizations, communities and agencies in order to ensure Eastern Georgian Bay remains healthy.
The World Wildlife Fund has just reported that 50% of marine life in the world has disappeared since 1970. In our own great lakes, fisheries and food webs are changing significantly.
Join us on Tuesday, October 27th to learn more about the history of fisheries and ecosystem changes in Georgian Bay and future concerns. Learn about the Eastern Georgian Bay Stewardship Council, their current projects and efforts to rehabilitate local Walleye stocks.
Presentations will be followed by EGBSC’s Annual General Meeting. We currently have space available on our Board for new directors, and we will be accepting nominations during the AGM. Contact for more details.
Registration information and more details can be found here.
We’ve been busy! In February 2015, EGBSC hosted two workshops focused on issues of Walleye decline and potential solutions. Check out the booklet that was created from those workshops here!
Our summer and fall activities included:
- Restoring a Walleye spawning bed in Ludgate, Ontario on the Key River, in partnership with the Key River Area Association
- Assessing spawning areas in major tributaries to Eastern Georgian Bay for Walleye, Lake Sturgeon and Suckers
- Distributing Walleye Woes, our booklet that describes issues and solutions to Walleye decline in Eastern Georgian Bay
- Continuing to re-connect with partners and develop a five year work plan
We rely on fundraising to carry out our projects. Any funds you donate will help us continue our important work. Please note that we are not a charitable organization and are unable to issue charitable receipts.
Annual Donations are a great way to support our organization and help us plan for future projects!
