Draft Plan Synopsis
The purpose of the Pigeon Lake Watershed Management Plan is to develop a comprehensive, science-based plan to motivate and coordinate action for the improvement of Pigeon Lake, its shore lands and watershed. The Vision of the Plan is: Working Together for a Healthy Watershed, Healthy Lake, Healthy Community. The intent of the plan is to guide people around the lake to make needed changes to the management of watershed lands, the shores and the lake. These actions will ultimately benefit the lake and the people who live, work and play in the Pigeon Lake region.
This plan will inform the provincially-led North Saskatchewan Regional Plan (which includes Pigeon Lake), as well as other regional agreements such as Intermunicipal Development Plans (IDP). What goes in this plan will be what we as individuals, municipalities, First Nations and provincial governments will do for Pigeon Lake. This plan will encourage people at all levels to choose to get involved and make a difference for Pigeon Lake.
