Welcome to the Scugog Lake Stewards

Scugog Lake Stewards Inc. is an all volunteer group dedicated to sustaining and enhancing the health of Lake Scugog and its watershed through the promotion of PROJECTS, RESEARCH. EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY STEWARDSHIP.  It is a Registered Charitable Organization incorporated in 2003 and audited annually.  Your involvement in our work, your actions and your knowledge are critical to the health of the lake.



The recent Mayor’s Gala raised $66,640.00 for local groups. The Lake Stewards are ‘over the moon’ that they have received 50% of those funds to go toward the LAKE SCUGOG ENHANCEMENT PROJECT, https://scugoglakestewards.com/lake-scugog-enhancement…/ the other half will be split between the Port Perry Hospital Foundation and The Oakridges Hospice. Thank you so much to former Mayor Drew and all the many organizers, the generous sponsors and donors of auction gifts and to all those folks who opened their wallets and made this event such a success. Shown below is the hard working Gala team, other recipients, the former Mayor, and the very hard working Lake Steward, Pat Bunting, who is raising funds for the Enhancement project.

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.
