Our Goal

Our goal is simple: provide planning, logistics, and technical know-how to grassroots environmental monitoring initiatives in the Haliburton region. We achieve this by being led by the people who have the most to gain from the collection of this data, the citizens of cottage country. WWEW is made up of a coalition of lake, cottage, and property owners’ associations; the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust; Trent University and Fleming College faculty; and the staff and management committee members of the U-Links Centre for Community Based Research. This unique mix gives us the enthusiasm for ensuring our common resources are maintained into the future as well as the knowledge and technical skills provided by our post-secondary partners.
