Lake Partner Program
BBPOA is looking for volunteers to join the "Lake Partner Program" with the Federation of Ontario Cottagers' Associations (FOCA) and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC). The Lake Partner Program is a province-wide, volunteer-based, water-quality monitoring program. Volunteers collect total phosphorus samples and make monthly water clarity observations on their lakes. This information will allow the early detection of changes in the nutrient status and/or the water clarity of the lake due to the impacts of shoreline development, climate change and other stresses. 800 inland lakes in Ontario are monitored, and we'd like to add Little Lake to that list.
