Our mission is to preserve, protect and enhance Lake Scugog.  Like other lakes, our Lake Scugog faces the challenges of invasive species, sedimentation, water quality and lake level issues.  It is our job to work with partners to ensure the lake remains healthy and attractive for future generations.

    If we are to know what to do for the lake, we first must understand it.  We are fortunate to have excellent support and partners to do this. Enjoy the information on this site and our Youtube Videos.
