Georgian Bay Webinars Help You Get Ready for Extreme Water Levels

December 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Georgian Bay Association and Georgian Bay Forever are hosting a series of free Saturday morning online webinars called “Extreme Water Levels: Impacts and Strategies”. Taking place on October 23rd, November 13th, and December 4th, these 2-hour webinars will feature expert speakers in science and conservation who will talk to the impacts of future extreme water levels on shorelines, property, and wildlife, and provide tips to reduce risk and damage.

“The high-high, and low-low extremes of water levels in the last 40 years have caused a lot of damage and anxiety for all of us who live and care about Georgian Bay,” says Rupert Kindersley, Executive Director of the Georgian Bay Association.
“Our members and partners have told us they want to know more about what the
future holds and how they can prepare for more extreme water level conditions. We teamed up with the science-based charity Georgian Bay Forever to produce these webinars to help all of us reduce future damage from more water level extremes.”

Each webinar is unique and features different speakers that will focus on impacts to the Georgian Bay ecosystem and the risk to people’s enjoyment of their shoreline residence and the beauty of the Bay. To attend, register online at gbf.org/H2O.
