We hope you will enjoy checking this live camera on a regular basis. Enjoy! (This part of our site is still under construction for your greater enjoyment.)

OUR STRATEGIC PLAN FOR 2020-2023
After due consultation with the public, Township and Kawartha Conservation; our Directors passed our Final Strategic Plan, 2020-2023, “Enhancing our Lake and Watershed.”
OUR LAKE RESEARCH GOALS 2020
This year because of the limitations set by response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are planning to take advantage of the many interested volunteers we have around the lake to feed in to us many levels of data for later analysis. For details of our 4 programs, see https://scugoglakestewards.com/lake-scugog-research/
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Lake Scugog is under pressure from many directions; time and its history are working against it. There are the pressures of increased population, invasive species and climate change; all of which are big factors for the continued health of our beautiful lake. (For additional information we have many videos posted on YouTube)
Every one of us can help whether we own lakefront property or not. Some ideas are to:
- Protect shorelines, stream, river edges and ditches from erosion into the lake. Percolate stormwater into your own property rather than into storm sewers.
- Avoid using fertilizers as they stimulate the harmful growth of lake plants and algae growth in the lake.
- Clean, drain, dry your boat before and after enjoying the lake.
- Promote the importance of a healthy lake to government, community and friends. Be part of the change.

Rob Messervey, President
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.
Over the years, work will be carried out to help our lake. The first improvement must start where the need is greatest for the whole lake, Port Perry Bay, through the Lake Scugog Enhancement Project.
