RLB has created a station that is both practical and educational, a first in Quebec. Attractive and interactive, the station is a great tool for education and awareness.

The organization was able, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, to launch its long-awaited boat cleaning project to combat aquatic invasive species. Between June 19 and October 12, 888 boats were washed free of charge before launching.

Réalisations 2020

As part of the shoreline renaturalization program, this year RLB planted nearly 530 plants of 15 different native species on 16 private properties along Brome Lake. Some developments have required more technical work to eradicate the plants invading the riparian strips. By the end of the fall, RLB aims to characterize the riparian strips of approximately 50 properties that did not comply with municipal regulations in 2016. The goal is to validate their state to date. Two biologists will be at work until the snow arrives.

Development work

During the winter of 2019-2020, Quilliams Creek suffered significant damage in the floodplain area at Foster which had been rehabilitated in 2015-2016. Under the coordination of Gestrie-sol, Renaissance lac Brome invested nearly $15,000 in the fall of 2020 in development work aimed at stabilizing the banks eroded by ice and runoff.
