Coastal Action Plan for the Southeastern Shores of Lake Huron
The Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation, along with many partner agencies, have been working on creating a unified strategy for Lake Huron’s Southeastern Shores (Sarnia to Tobermory) to manage and protect the resiliency and ecological integrity of our coastal ecosystems.
The PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD is now closed!
Thank you to all those who provided input
Started in 2016, this Action Plan will be released in December 2019.
We would like to welcome the public and any interested individuals to comment on the draft plan.
We have ensured that there has been a public influence on the creation of this document throughout its three-year development time frame.
We have hosted 12 coastal community workshops, welcoming 408 members of the public to learn about aspects of the Coastal Action Plan and provide their opinion as to what they would like to see for Lake Huron’s shores. Along with these workshops, we had 256 respondents participate in a questionnaire which asked what people value most about Lake Huron, and what they envision for Lake Huron’s future. Through these forms of engagement, we have been able to tailor the plan to fit our diverse coastal communities.
This non-regulatory plan will create a unified vision for Lake Huron's coastal conservation and stewardship efforts. This plan will enable a coordinated approach to address common issues and goals of communities along the Lake Huron shoreline.
The plan will develop a list of environmental management strategies by identifying valuable natural features and species, and the threats and stressors that negatively impact them.
