Healthy Lakes Contest – the basics
And now some added fun for your summer. The Healthy Lakes contest gives you a chance to win some wonderful weekly prizes and at the end of the summer a fabulous Grand Prize of $1000.
It’s pretty simple. Watch for lake health tips each week in the Haliburton Echo, Minden Times. The next week we’ll ask a question about the tip and you’ll email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org You have until Thursday 5pm to get in your answer.
All correct answers will go into our big sand bucket and each Friday we’ll announce that week’s winner, on The Canoe FM Drive Show and in the papers.
The contest runs from May 29th through to August 31st .
Check next week’s Minden Times and the Haliburton Echo for the first weeks tips.

And a big thank you to the Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners Associations for their leadership.
Hot off the press.
The Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners Associations (CHA) working with Julia Sutton and their technology partner (TechnicalitiesPlus) have created a web page that will present you with a selection of "Native" trees, scrubs, grasses, wildflowers and ferns for your property. The tool has options to specify your soil, sunlight, moisture, and location.
Abbey Gardens is gearing up to source all of the plants and trees - contact them for availability. Anyways, great tool to maintain or bring your shoreline back to life and greatly enhance your shoreline for all your aquatic friends.
PS. Julia will be speaking at our Annual General Meeting - July 14th. Stay tuned.
