Papineau Lake Conservation Area Kiosk
November 11, 2015
The North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority [NBMCA] recently completed the installation of an informative kiosk sign at the Papineau Lake Conservation Area. The lake is locally known as ‘Sturgeon Lake’.
Funding in the amount of $3,500 for the project was provided by the Greater Nipissing Stewardship Council from monies the council received from the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans as part of a court ordered settlement. The funds were to be spent on a restoration or educational type project in Papineau and/or Calvin Townships.
The information includes educational messaging as to why it is good to have buffer plantings near shorelines (riparian areas), such as improved water quality and fisheries habitat.
Examples of recommended native shrubs and trees species have been planted around the base of the kiosk for lake residents to consider in any shoreline or buffer planting they may undertake on their own properties.
