What is the State of Georgian Bay?
This report gives you a snapshot of the environmental health for eastern and northern Georgian Bay. Our team has reviewed some of the research from the Great Lakes, Lake Huron, and Georgian Bay to give you a summary of the conditions in water quality, fisheries, wetlands and natural areas in your community.
Measuring helps us better understand the environment along Georgian Bay. It helps to focus our efforts where they are needed most. It also allows us to identify healthy and ecologically important areas that require protection or enhancement.While Georgian Bay is considered to be in good condition compared to the other Great Lakes, it is still subject to pressures from water levels, invasive species, development and other human influences. We have found that although good environmental research has begun, there is a need for more research and monitoring. Look for stewardship programs that you can do with your family and your neighbours.
We all live, work or play in beautiful Georgian Bay.
Let’s protect it for future generations.
