    Jan Mackie and Judi McLeod worked tirelessly to raise awareness about plastic water bottle use and their toll on the environment. As a result of their efforts, water bottle filling stations were installed in 2016 in Tobermory, Lion's Head, and at the national park visitor centre.

    BPEG sponsored and facilitated a highly successful community discussion on sustainable tourism in October 2016 with more than150 participants. A BPEG Sustainable Tourism Working Group has been set up to craft a long-term community vision of how we want to see tourism develop on the Bruce Peninsula.

    Planting beds to deter geese

    In 2015, volunteers led by Rod Layman, including high school students, planted perennial beds along part of the north shore of Lion's Head beach to stop geese from fouling the beach. Additional perennial beds are planned to further discourage the birds from coming on-shore in the remaining areas of the beach, including the pavilion and campground areas.
