The Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations is extremely pleased to announce our featured speaking event for fall 2013, on the topic of climate change and the impacts on our water cycle – with very special guest Bob Sandford.
Bob is an internationally recognized expert on freshwater issues, and the impacts of changing climates on our freshwater resources globally, and across Canada. Bob’s fifth book released in 2012 is entitled Cold Matters - The State and Fate of Canada's Freshwater. He was recently honoured by Venture Magazine as one of Alberta's 50 most influential people of 2013.
Ontario’s waterfront communities are a group that has first-hand experience with the changes that are happening on the landscape, to the water cycle, and to the natural ebb and flow of nature. As rural landowners but also often urban dwellers, FOCA’s members and waterfront property owners across Canada are faced with the implications of a changing climate in many very practical and tangible ways.
