AWQA Day is a program of the Alberta Lake Management Society in partnership with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. AWQA Day was made possible through the generous support of sponsors EPCOR and TD Friends of the Environment Fund.
SLWSS volunteers applied “No Blue-Green Algae” tattoos on kids and adults who wanted to show support the campaign for a clean, clear lake.
