Information and education
Several types of action based on information and training are planned in the Triple lakes. These actions are aimed at the general public, landowners, forestry companies and farmers.
1. Forestry companies. Personnel involved in planning and implementation of forestry activities (e.g. running machine teams, planning managers, etc.) will participate in training courses. Both theory and practicing in the field will be used. This training course will be held for all forestry companies in the watersheds. This will allow for the development of communication between companies and joint actions in terms of water friendly forestry practices.
2. Local landowners (forestry). A large part of the catchment area is privately owned woodland. Training courses in forestry based on knowledge of necessary precautions for the aquatic environment will be given to landowners for each of the three lakes. Courses are planned to involve both theory and field excursions. These courses will be held separately for the three lakes. The courses will focus on education and information exchange. In addition a specific dialogue process will be run within the courses. The idea is to involve foresters in a discussion on which activities that may be most harmful to aquatic environments and then agree on which of these that can be altered or even omitted.
3. Farmers. Farming is relatively scarce in the area except for in the Locknesjön drainage area and in the northern part of Lake Näkten. In these two areas course/dialogues with farmers will be provided in line with those for local landowners in the forestry business. These courses will be held separately for the three lakes. In line with the course for foresters, a specific dialogue process will be incorporated in the courses for farmers.
4. Fishery managers. The fisheries of the lakes are managed and organized by fishery management units. They decide where, when and how fishing can be exerted. Also the fishery does have an impact on lake ecosystems, depending on intensity, size and species selectivity etc. A sustainable fishery is a prerequisite for the success of the project. Therefore courses also for fishery managers will be given. The ambition is, along with education and information, in a dialogue, to develop objectives and plans for the fishery.
5. Field events for the public. Popular presentations of project actions and accomplishments located at different sites each year. Guide tours along the watercourses and possibilities for participants to take part in water sampling, electrofishing, collection of zoobenthos, addition of gravel, moving stones and boulders etc.
