An open space in the forest with a view of a narrow creek going into the mountains

Pigeon Lake, one of the most intensively used recreational lakes in Alberta, has been home to Peggy Juchli and her family for 5 generations. Like many Alberta lakes, Pigeon Lake is green much of the summer, or highly eutrophic in scientific terms. Peggy wonders if her children will see a 6th generation on the lake. Stewardship and community will play a large part in the future health of this popular lake.
