Margaret Meade once said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” The Stony Lake Heritage Foundation models this philosophy and through its leadership has built a legacy to the benefit of future generations. It has been a genuine pleasure to work with them in the interest of the safe and sustainable enjoyment of our local waterways.

About the Foundation
The Stony Lake Heritage Foundation was established in 1996 to protect certain heritage buildings at Juniper Island, Stony Lake, Ontario and to protect the natural heritage of Stony Lake. For the purposes of the Foundation, Stony Lake includes what are locally known as Clear, Stony or Stoney, and Upper Stoney Lakes. The Foundation has supported projects including water quality testing, natural shoreline restoration, preservation and/or reconstruction of heritage buildings at Juniper Island, environmental mapping, preparation of a formal Lake Plan for Stony Lake, and lake bed core sampling and analysis. More information about our recent projects can be found in the News page on this website.
