Lakes and water bodies are a limited resource in Alberta and the demand for lake properties is high. The impact of significant development around water bodies combined with a changing climate is negatively affecting the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of Alberta lakes. These factors also have an impact on real estate sales and property values.
The Welcome to the Lake program, developed by the Pigeon Lake Watershed Association and informed by the Pigeon Lake REALTORS® working group, engages Alberta’s real estate professionals as healthy-lake stewards and equips them with stewardship training and resources that they can share with clients.
The resources produced for Pigeon Lake can be used by REALTORS® selling properties in watersheds across the province.
This project was funded in 2020 through the Foundation’s Grant Program.
