Dr. Barb Elliott – Professor, School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences at Fleming College – Ribbon of Life Presentation depicts shorelines as unique habitats that are found on planet Earth wherever land and water meet; be it on a lake, a river, a wetland, or an ocean. These ‘ribbons of live’ provide habitat for organisms, carry out essential ecosystem services, and are critical for the long term sustainability of healthy aquatic ecosystems. Everyone who lives on or near shorelines can make a positive impact on the future health of these vital and threatened ecotones. Find out how easy it is to “love your lake” and make a difference for generations yet to come.
