Friends of Oak Lake association shows strength in numbers
On Saturday July 20, about 30 residents of Oak Lake participated in the neighbourhood’s first-ever trash bash – an event organized by the newly formed Friends of Oak Lake association.
“We probably had about 30 people taking part,” said John Brewster, secretary-treasurer of the Friends of Oak Lake group, “and while we managed to pick up a lot of garbage, the whole idea of the trash bash was more of a meet and greet – you know… get to know your neighbours.”
The Friends of Oak Lake association was formed in late 2018 in order to provide a single focus toward the preservation of the environmental health and integrity of Oak Lake, which has had severe strains to its health over the past few decades. Currently, Hutchinson Environmental Services is performing a four-season study of the lake with a focus on the development and implementation of a Lake Management Plan with the assistance of the City of Quinte West and The Lower Trent Conservation Authority.
