"The ultimate objective is to clean up the lake by reducing phosphorus input and other pollutants from getting into the lake and improving the cold-water fish habitat," said Phil Davies, the LSCRA's manager of watershed stewardship.

"It's all done by making improvements on the landscape. All the land-use practices that we do end up flowing through the rivers and creeks into Lake Simcoe," Davies said.
Landowner involvement is critical because the bulk of the land in the watershed is owned by private landowners. A small portion is Crown land, Davies said.
"Without working with private landowners, the objectives we want to achieve wouldn't be achieved," he said.
The LSRCA has been involved in clean-up projects with landowners since it initiated its stewardship programs in 1989. The landowners Environmental Assistance Program (LEAP) is funded by member municipalities, Davies said.
The project got a huge boost when the federal government introduced the Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund in 2007 with the injection of $30 million.
That money, together with LEAP funding, allowed for many projects where waterfront residents could be sponsored to upgrade septic systems. This is an important action waterfront residents can take to reduce the amount of phosphrous from flowing into Lake Simcoe, Davies said.

People who live along creeks can also apply to have planting of trees and shrubs that help improve water quality, Davies said.
...
People want to see that improved," Davies said.
"All the work we do in stewardship is based on science and monitoring of the aquatic habitat and forest landscapes. We use all that to see what the issues are, what the most appropriate solutions are and then we go to the landowners," he said.

Each year, the organization, entrusted to protect and restore the environmental health and quality of Lake Simcoe and its watershed, plants thousands of native trees, watershed stewardship manager Phil Davies said.

"Because we buy trees in bulk for our own planting programs, we can offer a limited supply to the public at good prices," he said. "We're targeting people with large parcels of land that want to buy at least 100 seedlings."
Planting trees is a relatively simple way to achieve significant positive environmental benefits. Landowners who purchase and plant trees through the program are improving their property and making a big difference to improve the health of the watershed, Davies said.

"Paul has been with authority for more than 14 years and has a wealth of knowledge that he'd love to share," Davies said.
