Manitoulin Streams was very happy to attend the Gore Bay Harbour Days event this last Saturday. Jesse was very busy educating on stream restoration and recent beetle releases that took place in this town. Gore Bay hosts this yearly event that has turned into a fun hotspot that entertains many tourists and locals. Way to go Gore Bay!
Jesse Beaudin of Manitoulin Streams took part in M’Chigeeng’s Youth Rods and Reels Event in July. Constable Murray attended and demonstrated safe fishing techniques and how to assemble a new Rod. The kids learned how to properly set bait, tie knots, cast their rod, the different types of fish, and how to fish responsibly while keeping a healthy river eco-system. An amazing program and well received, a big Miigwech to Constable Murray and all volunteers!
We would like to introduce Angela Kuttemperoor to our team. She is our OFAH Invasive Species Awareness Liaison. Please visit her booth if you see her at local community events. She has lots of information about preventing invasive species from being transferred onto Manitoulin Island. Welcome Angela!
The Little Current Fish and Game Club have finished retrieving the Walleye out of their ponds successfully. Thank you for all your hard work so that future generations can enjoy walleye in our lakes and waters. Great job everyone.
Manitoulin Phragmites Week Event starts July 22-28th! Come on out to one of the demonstrations being held across the island or help with removal. Let's keep our Island beautiful and prevent this invasive reed from spreading. Learn techniques on how to remove it from your property before it overtakes your shoreline frontage.
In June, Seija and Jesse spent some time in Gore Bay helping the Municipality and biologist Donna release beetle larva into the patches of purple loosestrife that is taking over the marsh. The Gore Bay Fish & Game Club and Grade 2-3 from C.C. McClean came out to help with the activities and learn about the life cycle of the beetle.
