Video: We need more nature in our Lake Winnipeg watershed
Lake Winnipeg is again making news headlines as ugly algae blooms rear up in the height of this summer’s heat. One solution for Lake Winnipeg's ailments will have broad benefits to our lives — ensuring natural vegetation keeps our agricultural lands separated from our waterways. Nutrients and farm chemicals applied to industrial agricultural land can be contained with better buffers, like windrows and grass strips. And in turn, we’ll provide habitat for pollinators, store carbon in healthier soil to benefit our climate and improve water health.
