Protecting The Lake
The PLTN board remains very concerned with the risk of aquatic invasive species contaminating our lakes. Of the roughly 20 plant species in Quebec considered invasive, the predominant threat is from myriophylle (Eurasian Milfoil) which has already contaminated 46 surrounding lakes in the Laurentians including Supérieur, Mercier, Ouimet, Barkmere, Labelle, Carré.
With no known predators this plant spreads very quickly, absorbing much of the oxygen and over-taking a lake and its biodiversity. Once established it is virtually impossible to eliminate and can only be managed with very costly efforts.
New Guardian House Station & Boat Wash Station Fundraiser
Support PLTN to keep Lac Tremblant free of invasive species with the construction of Roundhouse and Boat Wash station.
Fundraising goal $600k includes all-in capital costs.
Successful fundraising means new facilities in 2018.
We have successfully raised $520k so far and need $80k to complete.
