THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO - March 26, 2018 (LSN) Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior (CLLS) is pleased to announce that the Great Lakes Community Guardian Fund has awarded the non-profit organization with $25,000.
The Project will restore the shoreline, septic areas, and docking station of the Trowbridge Island Lightstation. The Project will entail underwater clean up around Trowbridge Island, garbage pickup at the old garbage dump on Trowbridge Island, and a shoreline clean-up upon the island.
The mandate of CLLS is to preserve, protect and promote public access to Canadian Lighthouses on LakeSuperior. Paul Capon, Chair said “This is a wonderful opportunity to restore Trowbridge Lighthouse back to its original state, to further provide a clean environment for future visitors, and coordinate work with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.”
The organization currently leases three lighthouse sites along the north shore of Lake Superior providing visitors with opportunities to reconnect to the historic significance of these beacons. Activities are offered to the public that includes an Artist-in-Residence Program, Host Keeper Program and Canada Summer Job opportunities.
This summer in collaboration with Thunder Bay Yacht Club, there will be an On-the-Water Rendezvous held in July at T-Harbour. Invited members and public can come and see first-hand the work taking place at Trowbridge Island Lighthouse to protect our environment.
