SPEAKER - Bradley Peters is a biologist and Executive Director of ALMS (Alberta Lake Management Society). The society's LakeWatch Program uses volunteers to conduct monitoring at approximately 30 Alberta lakes each summer. The purpose of this program is to identify invasive species; cyanobacteria (blue green algae) and water chemistry. Bradley will talk about the interesting work they do and how you can become part of looking after an Alberta lake, if you are so inclined.
So is this an invasive species or not? Come to the meeting to find out.

SPEAKER - To continue our theme on invasive species come join Janine Higgins, a Community Engagement Lead with Alberta Environment and Parks, to learn about the invasive species threatening Alberta and the Aquatic Invasive Species program built to battle them. This is the muscle of the program to prevent their establishment in Alberta. Janine will introduce the Respect our Lakes Program and the actions you can take to help protect our lakes from more than just invasive species. A lot of this is simple precautionary stuff but there are a few tid bits of info you should be aware of.
I will leave further info at each club this summer.

ELECTIONS - For the following positions:
SPEAKER - On "buying" a boat in Maine and hauling it home. My cousin lives on an island off the Maine coast, a beautiful location. He has five sailboats, a lobster boat and a dinghy he can sail. He bought a used boat which is when I took the Island Excalibur off his hands. I previously had a new trailer shipped to Maine to tow the boat home to Edmonton. I've spent the last two summers fixing it up. Dave Carr.
