Lake Huron North

Collaborating to improve water quality and habitats in and around St. Marys River and Lake Huron’s North Channel.

Collective impact: Maximizing the efficacy of individual organizations and communities

Lake Huron North (LHN) is a network of organizations who strive to improve water quality through collaboration and community-based stewardship. We work together in a coordinated effort with local community groups, individual volunteers, landowners, and the public service, to protect and improve overall water quality and habitats in and around the St. Marys River and West North Channel of Lake Huron. We always welcome collaborations with others in our region, especially underrepresented persons, and organizations. Contact us [link to page] to inquire about potential partnerships!

 

The goals of LHN are to maximize the efficacy of individual organizations and communities, to increase local capacities to respond to threats in the Lake Huron basin, and to provide information related to our stewardship efforts. Although our actions are local, we consider our global responsibilities as stewards of some of the greatest freshwater bodies in the world.

Current Projects

Re-naturalization (trees and shrubs)

We periodically support our member organizations in their efforts to improve or renaturalize public spaces using trees and/or shrubs, depending on the area being planted. In addition to these efforts, our members also often have their own tree planting campaigns in which different kinds of trees are distributed to members of the public free of charge.

Cattle exclusion fencing

When cattle have direct access to waterways, they often overgraze and trample shoreline areas, which destabilizes them (makes them prone to erosion) and increases the amounts of sediments in the stream.

Water quality monitoring

With LHN’s support, the Central Algoma Freshwater Coalition has created climate change local adaptation booklets for free distribution across Algoma Region.
