This public engagement, education and outreach program encourages individuals to care for their lakes, and to declare their love for and desire to safeguard them for future generations. It includes a series of outreach tools and workshops designed to educate lake communities about best practices in shoreline management and encourage public participation in local planning initiatives to better protect existing ecological values. “I Love My Lake” program is a public engagement tool that is transferable not only within the Columbia basin but across Canada.
