Go with the Flow:
Water levels and what shapes Lake Huron.

The third webinar in our “Learning about Lake Huron – A Summer Coastal Webinar Series” will discuss why Lake Huron’s water levels fluctuate, how this affects coastal communities during high-times and low, and how communities can embrace the fluctuations. We will also discuss ‘coastal process’ or how shoreline coastal ecosystems react to lake level changes in their shape, ecology, and geomorphology.

Throwing Shade:
The right plants for your coastal environment

The fourth webinar in our “Learning about Lake Huron – A Summer Coastal Webinar Series” will discuss the 10 different ecosystems alive on Lake Huron’s shores, what plants inhabit and thrive in these areas, and how you can incorporate the right native plants in your gardens and on your property to improve water recharge, reduce erosion, protect from rising lake levels, and increase habitat for native flora and fauna. One of our most commonly asked queries about “what should I plant on my property” will be answered! You will get a chance in the Q&A to ask about your specific situation.

Identifying Imitators:
Comparing species at risk to their look-a-likes

The fifth webinar in our “Learning about Lake Huron – A Summer Coastal Webinar Series” will discuss a few different and unique species at risk that live on or travel across Lake Huron, and compare these to their look-a-like companions. Often, species at risk have developed unique features, colorants, or behaviors to protect themselves from predators or allow them to live in harsh, demanding environments, which have been imitated by other non-native species! Attend this webinar if you want to learn more about the species at risk on Lake Huron, including Butterflies, Birds, Turtles, Trees and Snakes.

This webinar is generously sponsored by Nuclear Waste Management Organization, Bruce Power, and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation as a cornerstone of our Coast Watchers Citizen Science Program and our Green Ribbon Champion Restoration Program.
