Researchers from the Canadian Museum of Nature are asking for our help to document and understand the biodiversity of lac Heney.
If you happen to see dead smelt in shallow water of Lac Heney immediately after ice-out, please collect and store some in your freezer. Contact us or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will organize a pick up.
Why? A thorough understanding of the lake ecosystem is essential to protecting the lake. Restoration of the lake trout might depend on a solid base of forage fish, such as these smelt.
