A Busy Summer preparing for a Zebra Mussel Infestation

July 6, 2018

The South West Informational Meeting on Zebra Mussels was held in Elbow on Lake Diefenbaker on Saturday April 21st.  A dedicated group of 62 participants from 20 communities on and around Lake Diefenbaker gathered to learn about mussels and to conclude with the formation of a committee which has since been implementing a made-at-home initiative to prevent an infestation in their lake.

The South East Informational Meeting was held in Fort Qu'Appelle on Saturday June 16th.  Attendees from the communities on the Qu'Appelle Lakes and neighbouring communities followed the presentation with a discussion about on their vulnerability to infestation from boats arriving on the Trans-Canada from points east in Canada and from the south-east in North Dakota.
