Lakeview School Students do Large Garbage Cleanup

On November 2nd a wonderful group of 26 volunteers showed up for the first M’Chigeeng Community River Cleanup.  Lyndsay Taibossigai coordinator with Right to Play organized volunteers from the community, Lakeview School students and Manitoulin Streams.

We gathered behind the arena for a blessing and teaching on the importance of water.  We then split up to clean up different portions of the river.  It was amazing what we found and the hard work put in by the volunteers removing it.  The students of Lakeview School and their teacher Connie Freeman have spearheaded the restoration efforts on this river to improve the water quality, fish and aquatic habitat. Kudos to all of those that helped out!

Electrofishing & Invertebrate sampling with Lakeview School

Manitoulin Streams was approached by the grade 8 students of Lakeview School to help them restore  West Bay Creek which resides within their community of  M’Chigeeng.  We started out last year with some stream walks and talks and this year we started getting baseline information about the stream conducting invertebrate and fish assessments with Laurentian University and College Boreal.
The students will be documenting their efforts over the next couple of years as we work together towards restoring the fish and aquatic habitat along this watercourse.
