GRCA osprey cam supported by donations from Belwood Lake Cottagers Association.

In March a team of GRCA staff and supporters installed a webcam on an osprey nest at Belwood Lake. This nest has been occupied for several years. The osprey arrived back at the Belwood nest on April 8, 2015 and by the end of April when the camera went live they had two eggs in the nest.  Your BLCA board agreed to support this Osprey Cam with a donation.  This donation again demonstrates the strong working relationship between the BLCA and the GRCA.  See the Live Cam by clicking below

Belwood Lake Cottagers' Association (BLCA) Members John Hamilton, Vice President, and Keith McKee, President, recently came into the Groves Hospital Foundation to present an extremely generous $10,000 gift to the New Groves Hospital Project! The BLCA is a non-profit organization consisting of 300+ Members, all of whom are Belwood Lake Cottagers, with a Board of Directors of 11 volunteers, including John & Keith. A great big thank you to all of the BLCA Members for your support of the future of health care in Centre Wellington!

Benches Donated

The Belwood Lake Cottagers' Association (BLCA), representing approximately 300 of the 335 cottage owners on Belwood Lake, donated two park benches to the Grand River Conservation Foundation, an organisation managed by the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA).  The donation demonstrates the strong working relationship between the BLCA and the GRCA.  Both parties are committed to the prosperity of the local community and to the conservation of the Grand River watershed, as well as to the success of the Cottage Lot Program at Belwood Lake.  The benches are located in the park at the Shand Dam Conservation area.  Representing the GRCA are, from left, Craig Bolton, Superintendent of Property, Sam Lawson, Manager of Property, and Jane Mitchell, Chair of the GRCA.  Representing the BLCA are Keith McKee, President, and John Hamilton, 1st VP.
