It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of our annual seedling day scheduled for Saturday May 16th. The amount of personal interaction involved with this event made it potentially unsafe for our staff, volunteers and members.
We have also made the decision to convert our in-person water quality training sessions at Rosseau Lake College [May 9] and Port Carling Community Center [May 16] into on-line distance learning. Details for on-line training and Q&A sessions will be advised at a later date. We do not currently know what impact COVID-19 will have on the traditional water sampling program, particularly for the May 16 sample weekend. Chelsea Callard will be contacting our volunteers regarding their availability and individual circumstances. While it is our intent to operate the Water Quality program this year, the safety of our volunteers is our first priority, so we will be keeping abreast of current Ontario Health guidance going forward and adjusting our program accordingly.
We will continue to update you on our plans for all future MLA events in due course.
