Safe Quiet Lakes Association:
The Safe Quiet Lakes Association, in late August, released the findings of the comprehensive Muskoka region lake activity survey conducted by ERIN Research Inc. The response to the survey was overwhelming and reconfirmed that Canadians are passionate about our lakes and lake activities; almost 2300 people participated and added over 130 pages of suggestions. The results of the survey are available at www.safequiet.ca.
For information on an invasive and dangerous plant that has been found in Seguin Township, please go to this link on the Seguin Township website: Giant Hogweed or if you think you have giant hogweed, you may call the Invasive Species Hotline at 1-800-553-7711 or online at http://www.invadingspecies.com. Be sure to take photos of what your suspect might be a giant hogweed but DO NOT TOUCH IT. The invasive species group can identify from the photo.
Seguin Township is requesting help to reduce BILLBOARD SIGNAGE on our highways.
The acceleration of signs on highways in and near Seguin is not in line with the township’s ‘Environment FIrst’ position. You can help by confirming your support for Seguin by writing Eric Doidge, Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why join the Horseshoe Lake Association?

1. Did you know that Horseshoe Lake is classified “at development capacity” by the Township of Seguin?
2. Did you know that that the Township and your Association constantly monitors water quality and lake suseptibility to invasive plant life?
3. Did you know that we measure and have kept monthly water level data for the past 35 years?
