Established as a ‘not for profit’ association on September 17th, 1985 (Alberta Society #50332967-4) we later changed our name to “The Lac La Nonne Enhancement and Protection Association” in 1999 to reflect our new objectives as a community based Watershed Stewardship Group. In 2004 LEPA received charity status (Canada Charity #10758 3650 RR0001) to access additional funding sources to achieve our expanded mandate. LEPA is dedicated to engaging our members in projects and activities aimed at improving the lake and watershed. In addition we strive to educate our members and the public on the importance of responsible management of our natural areas through workshops, tours and newsletters.
Our membership is derived from the campers, cottagers, residents and visitors who inhabit the subdivisions of Chrystyna Beach, Greendale, Idle Hours Resort, Lac La Nonne South, Moonlight Bay, Moonlight Bay Estates, Mortensen Beach, Williams Beach, Winkleman Beach, Whiterock Beach, Murray’s Beach and the Summer Village of Birch Cove. And from the campgrounds and resorts: Camp Encounter, Elks Beach, Killdeer Beach, Willowbend Resort and the Seniors Lakeside Resort. Also included are the surrounding agriculture producers and businesses.
