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.

Volunteers Needed for Restoration Project!
EGBSC is looking for volunteers to help out with a fish passage restoration project taking place in Carling. We are looking for a small number of people to help with moving and positioning sandbags, helping us install silt curtains and being on-site to help monitor conditions.
Restoration is taking place between October 2nd and 6th, weather dependent.
If you are interested and would like more details, please get in touch with us!
Sponsor a Fish…a Wooden Fish!
Help EGBSC and Wasauksing First Nation school purchase materials to bring the Stream of Dreams program, an award winning environmental education and community art program, to all students at Wasauksing First Nation school.
Each student will have the opportunity to learn and share about what makes streams and rivers healthy, using the Seguin River as a local example. Students will have an opportunity to reflect on what they’ve learned and paint their own dream fish. All of the dream fish will be used to create a mural on the school fence to showcase their art and create a symbol of hope for healthy rivers and healthy fish.
We are helping to raise funds to purchase the wooden fish that will be painted. Please help us with this great project! Donations can be made on our website or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
