The Township offers Lake Ecosystem Grants to support and encourage the preservation, restoration, monitoring and analysis of lake ecosystems within South Frontenac. Not for profit community organizations including lake associations, charitable organizations and unincorporated groups who meet the project guidelines can apply during certain grant windows each year for funds. See our Municipal Grants page for details.

Here are just a few of the projects funded in 2022:

  • Dog and Cranberry Lakes Association: $10,000 grant to develop a Lake Stewardship Plan to ensure the water quality of Dog and Cranberry Lake is sustainable for future generations and to complete a Love your Lake report highlighting what actions need to be taken to protect the lake (e.g. education, shoreline plantings).
  • Inverary Lake Residents Association: $4,153.98 grant to purchase ‘No Wake’ signs to promote slow boating and reduced wakes to slow shoreline soil erosion and loss of vegetation and to complete a shoreline assessment through the “Love Your Lake” program conducted by Watersheds Canada.
  • The Nature Conservancy of Canada: $10,000 grant to improve wetland habitat at the Milburn Creek Nature Reserve in Battersea by using an approved herbicide to invasive phragmites and engage community members through three volunteer events to control invasive buckthorn and garlic mustard plants along the 2.7 km trail.
  • Queen’s University Biological Station: $6,030 to implement a turtle nest protection and relocation program to reduce nest mortality and to engage the public with wildlife conservation.  The project involves distributing nest protection devices to shoreline owners in South Frontenac.
