KAWARTHA LAKES: The Kawartha Lakes Environmental Advisory Committee (KLEAC) will be holding their first ‘Environmental Round Table Summit’ this month.
The event will occur on Monday, May 17th, and will run from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
“KLEAC and other environ-mental representatives in Kawartha Lakes will gather virtually to identify and discuss the environmental priorities across the community and begin to collaborate on how to achieve their goals,” a Kawartha Lakes press release explained. Some of the groups taking part in the summit are Canopy Project Kawartha Lakes, Couchiching Conservancy, Environmental Action Bobcaygeon, Kawartha Conservation, Kawartha Cycling Club, Kawartha Lakes Green Trails Alliance and the Gaming Nature Center.
“I’m very much looking forward to being part of the first streamed Kawartha Lakes Environmental Roundtable Summit,” Ward 8 councillor and KLEAC member Tracy Richardson said in a statement. “We have dedicated community members and organizations who will be exchanging information, facts and opinions. It will give us an opportunity to identify priorities between the municipality and groups, and how it aligns with our Healthy Environment Plan.”
