North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper kicks off the swimming season this holiday weekend:
Jennelle Pollock grew up on a farm near Pigeon Lake, where swimming was pretty much second nature.
“My mom was a stay-at-home mom. When we were younger, we would go to the lake a lot, especially when it was really hot outside,” said the 26-year-old teacher.
Now she lives in Edmonton.
“When I first moved to the city from the farm I really struggled. I was like ‘Oh no, where’s the lake?’”
As it turns out, there are plenty of options for swimming that are close to Edmonton and the North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper, a volunteer group dedicated to preserving waterways, will be helping people find them with the 2012 Swim Guide.
Swim Guide shares the best information we have at the moment you ask for it. Always obey signs at the beach or advisories from official government agencies. Stay alert and check for other swimming hazards such as dangerous currents and tides. Please report your pollution concerns so Affiliates can help keep other beach-goers safe.
