Kash Art on the Water’ is an artisan event taking place Saturday, August 7th, 2021 10 am – 4 pm at dock and properties around Kashagawigamog Lake (rain date August 8th, 2021). 

Guests are encouraged to tour the lake by boat, or by environmentally sound watercraft or by car to view, purchase & admire items displayed by artists who live or cottage on the lake.  We are hoping for a wide variety of fine arts and crafts to be displayed at locations all around our lake.

Hope to see our community enjoying all that our Kash Lake artists have to offer.

LKO Conservation Award

OUR LKO CONSERVATION HERO FOR 2019!

The LKO Conservation Award Committee is pleased to announce the winning entry of the inaugural 2019 Conservation Award is the Silver Beach Stewardship Committee from Silver Beach Condominiums.

Their project consisted of how they created and instituted a 5-year plan to rehabilitate in an environmentally responsible manner the common ground areas left after construction, the lake shoreline and the pond and to reintroduce native plants, shrubs and trees.

They began by engaging the expertise of the Haliburton County Master Gardeners to help identify areas suitable in the common areas for gardens and plantings of native trees and plants. Three Hugel beds were then created for residents to dump compostable material to be used in the future gardens. Following this, to reduce the number of common grassy areas, 3 flower beds were created to be planted this summer with pollinator friendly plants. Areas that were not suitable for gardens were identified for planting edible plants such as raspberry and blueberry and native species such as milkweed and sumac.

Future plans consist of vegetable gardens and more plantings.
