We enjoyed meeting so many of you interested in environmental stewardship!
The Stewardship Foundation (LFPSF) is collaborating with PERK (People for and Environmentally Responsible Kenmore) regarding toxic dioxins and the disruptions of sediments in the area of Kenmore Harbor. The toxins are of concern to all people and animals who may be in contact with the water, whether wading, swimming at the beaches, boating or fishing. The original source of the dioxins has not been determined, but last year test samples were taken in the area of Kenmore Harbor, all the way to Lake Forest Park Civic Club, and the dioxins were found to be present.

We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful place with involved citizens, who also like to have a little fun.
