Call For Volunteers - CANADA DAY

Currently we are happily preparing for our second annual Canada Day event.

We require several volunteers to make this day a success. Please let us know if you would be able to help out on Canada day. Shifts can be early or late (set up and take down) and as long or as short as you would like. We appreciate any time you can offer.

Please let us know your availability and if you have a preferred area where you would like to volunteer. There are volunteer opportunities supervising the bounce house, supervising kids games, helping with cake and popcorn or handing out Canada day memorabilia.

Thank you everyone for your help. Without volunteer assistance, events like this would not be possible.

Due to the discovery of Whirling Disease in the Bow River, Alberta Fisheries has been conducting an investigation and developing a course of action. The result of this is that several man-made lakes in the Calgary area have been denied or delayed in the receipt of their 2017 fish license. We are fortunate to have been granted our license. Because this investigation is ongoing we are feeling pressure to protect our water and our lake.

We are therefore going to put a temporary moratorium on the use of outside boats in our water and ask fisherman to be careful that all their equipment is clean. This moratorium is temporary and will be lifted as we have better understanding of the Alberta Fisheries investigation and plan.

WHIRLING DISEASE INFORMATION

During the fall of 2016 Whirling Disease was detected and confirmed in Banff national Park. This disease affects salmonid fishes including species of trout, salmon and whitefish. The disease has spread beyond the National Park boundary and is present in the Bow River water basin including the Bow River, Elbow River and related tributaries.

According to a CBC news article:
“The entire Bow River Watershed has been infected with whirling disease, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has declared, prompting new province-wide measures to try to contain the spread.
The disease can cause infected fish - predominantly trout and whitefish - to swim in a whirling pattern and die prematurely.
The agency has also declared the rest of the province a "buffer zone" for the disease.”
The spread of this disease from one body of water to another occurs as a result of wildlife and human activity. The commercial fish industry that hatches and raises trout species for stocking lakes such as ours has been tested by the Province of Alberta and most tested negative for the presence of the disease, including our supplier.

We are advised that the human consumption of fish that may be affected by disease is safe.
