What you see here is the public face of a stewardship tracking system developed by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources that allows organizations to manage stewardship projects in a standardized way. The system also allows key data to be seen by everyone. This efficient and transparent stewardship project infrastructure has been made possible by funding from the federal Lake Simcoe Clean Up Fund, and many of the projects you see have been funded by LSCUF as well. Over 1000 projects have been completed to help Lake Simcoe since the Lake Simcoe Proection Plan was implemented.

Purpose

The purpose of this online database is to strengthen stewardship on Lake Simcoe to build on all the key priority areas in the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan.

  • Restoring the health of aquatic life
  • Improving water quality, including reducing loadings of phosphorus to the lake
  • Maintaining water quantity
  • Improving the health of the ecosystem by protecting and rehabilitating important areas such as shorelines and natural heritage
  • Addressing impacts of invasive species, climate change and recreational activities

Being a community-driven database for the Lake Simcoe watershed community, it will also enhance accountability, provide ongoing traction to ensure that projects are completed and meet their goals, and create a community-friendly knowledge exchange that is vital for the ongoing environmental shift required in this watershed.
