At H2O 2018, Kathryn Davis gave a talk on her journey battling invasive Phragmites in her shoreline community of Georgian Bay. Watch the video below.
Kathryn spoke about acquiring resources first with her Honey Harbour cottage association and then with other partners like Georgian Bay Forever, the Georgian Bay Township, and Federation of Ontario Cottagers. This is one of 5 presentations on Phragmites that day.
Also presenting was Dr. Shannon Carto from the office of the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO). Dr. Carto spoke about Climate Change and it's impacts right now globally, in Ontario and on the Great Lakes. She spoke about your environmental bill of rights and the role that municipalities can play in mitigating future greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climate. Watch the video below.
We thank the ECO, a really important watchdog for the environment over the last 25 years. The Ontario government just announced they are cutting this office.
