Upper Rideau Lake Association
URLA 2019 Tree and Shrub Program
The Upper Rideau Lake Association (URLA)is a non-profit volunteer organization of seasonal and permanent residents, holiday lake users, and residents of the village of Westport, interested in promoting and protecting the natural environment of the Upper Rideau. The Association is a strong voice to its members in regional bodies governing the lake and participates with other lake associations in projects and alliances.
Through the support of Rideau Lakes Environmental Foundation and Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, we are pleased to provide low-cost trees saplings for you to help naturalize your lakeshore property as well as FREE bareroot seedlings.
Help protect our lake
By planting more trees and shrubs near your lakeshore you are helping to create a more naturalized shoreline to trap runoff more effectively, acting as a buffer to absorb contaminants from runoff, keeping the lake cleaner, reducing algae and weed growth. Additional vegetation also reduces erosion and provides better overall habitat for may fish species.
