PROPOSED TRAIL FOR EASTERN BLUEBIRD NESTING AND MONITORING IN HALIBURTON Prepared by Anna Robbins (Trent ERST 4830Y) for the Haliburton Highlands Field Naturalists. Supervised by Dr. Cheryl McKenna-Neuman, and Dr. Tom Whillans, Trent School of the Environment. https://database.ulinks.ca/items/show/4848
"The Haliburton Highlands Field Naturalists (HHFN) requested recommendations on constructing an eastern bluebird nesting and monitoring trail along Gelert Road from Haliburton to Minden Hills, Ontario. Gelert Road has 39 potential site locations that would be ideal to place nesting boxes on, located in grassland, farmland and well-maintained private yards. The sites are placed along private land and once approved, would be accessible to volunteers monitoring the nesting boxes."

CALCIUM DECLINE, IMPACTS AND POTENTIAL MITIGATION EFFORTS IN KAWAGAMA LAKE Prepared by Roshelle Chan, Marissa Pucci, and Ankit Tripathi (Trent ERSC 3840) for the Kawagama Lake Cottagers’ Association (KLCA). Supervised by Dr. Shaun Watmough, Professor and Director of the Trent School of the Environment. https://database.ulinks.ca/items/show/4850
"Due to growing concern among members of the Kawagama Lake Cottager's Association (KLCA) community, a literature review was conducted in efforts to increase awareness regarding calcium decline in Kawagama Lake in Haliburton, Ontario, and surrounding freshwater lakes in the region. Before selecting a method for mitigation, it is important to understand both the background of calcium decline and the biological interconnectedness between aquatic and terrestrial environments. This report describes the mechanisms responsible for calcium decline, the ecological effects associated with calcium decline, and possible mitigation efforts that may be used to prevent further decline in lake calcium concentrations."
