David Janeson and his wife, Lori, are proud owners of Gull Harbour Marina on Lake Winnipeg, in the heart of the historic community of New Iceland. But Janeson finds his true passion in giving back to his neighbors and promoting responsible environmental stewardship for generations to come.
David Janeson and the Maskwa Project
David Janeson is a committed supporter of the Maskwa Project, a nonprofit organisation devoted to the “[promotion] of education and demonstration of energy conservation, environmental stewardship and appropriate technology.”
The Maskwa Project has urban and rural components. The urban outpost, located in Winnipeg, provides crucial after-school, weekend, and summer programming for at-risk youth. The rural component, a popular retreat for large and small groups alike, features canoes, swimming, a sauna, and other amenities. The Maskwa Project retreat supports Scouting, a cause close to Janeson’s heart.
David Janeson and Hecla Grindstone Provincial Park
David Janeson is a vocal booster for Hecla Grindstone Provincial Park, one of Manitoba’s most popular and accessible natural areas. Occupying a picturesque collection of islands in Lake Winnipeg, the park is a magnet for migratory birds, lake fowl, and other wildlife. Visitors’ recreation options include canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, Nordic skiing, mountain biking, and more.
David Janeson Around New Iceland
When Janeson isn’t contributing his time and talents to Maskwa and Hecla Grindstone, he’s more likely than not to be found on or near his beloved Lake Winnipeg. He enjoys long mountain bike rides and Nordic skiing circuits along the shoreline, and kayak excursions to far-flung corners of the lake itself.
