The Kootenay Lake Summit will highlight current research initiatives as well as identify main challenges for the lake and potential solutions to these problems. Themes will include climate change, lake fertilization, how to live healthy by the water, and tourism. The event will encourage a broader and deeper understanding of the lake’s ecosystem and build cooperative relationships among Kootenay Lake communities.
