Native Plants Orders - deadline Dec 1st

In an effort to support association environmental projects and local businesses, the MLPOA executive has combined with Country Rose Garden Centre (Haliburton) to offer the purchase of Native Plant Species to members, at a reduced cost of 15%, to help re-naturalize shoreline around Moore, East Moore and the Gull River. The plants selected will help reduce erosion, attract pollinators and other riparian zone organisms, and add colour and fragrance to the shoreline.


Country Rose will process the orders through their suppliers and the plants will be delivered to a central location near Moore Falls, for members to pick up, on the Saturday after the May long weekend (Sat May 29 2021 - tentative).

See Members Only area- Forums- Environment section for more information on the selection and pricing.

We are interested to know if people have spent, or may be planning to spend, more time at their waterfront properties in Ontario because of travel restrictions and physical distancing protocols, including work-from-home options. We know that the amount of time spent in our waterfront communities can have a direct impact on the local economy, and the provision of important public services. Help FOCA to quantify the impact of our community

When you join the meeting, please go on mute.  Look for the picture of a microphone, usually on the bottom of the screen: if there is a line through it, you are on mute.  If there is no line through it, please click on the microphone to go on mute. Alternatively, you may see your mike in red, which means you are already on mute.  If it is green, you are not, so please click it to go on mute.

During the meeting, to ask a question, just unmute yourself by clicking on the microphone.

We ask that you keep your video cameras off.  Your board of directors will have their cameras on when they are presenting.  With this many people, video cameras ‘on’ tend to create delays, as they require too much bandwidth.
