Today was our first day of River School in partnership with 4elements living arts! The kids had a lot of fun learning about the Kagawong River and the life cycles of invertebrates. They got their feet wet and became little scientist searching in the river for aquatic bugs and crayfish and made wonderful art creations out of clay. Michael Mantha our MPP showed up to support 4elements and Manitoulin Streams in launching this program and thanked the Ontario Trillium Foundation for funding this community driven project. Michael had fun participating in the program with the kids. Who knew Michael Mantha could run so fast!
Thank you to everyone that came out to support Manitoulin Streams at our first Jacket & Jeans Gala. There were some amazing prizes donated by local businesses across Manitoulin Island following our theme of "Of the island, for the the island" and we are very appreciative for all of your support! Thank you and Miigwech!
Another beautiful day at the beach with more friends from Lakeview School. An amazing group of inquisitive kids, these kids were very knowledgable and seemed to retain information from the Bass Lake Creek event they attended. Way to go Lakeview!!
Manitoulin Streams was pleased to guide a tour with these young enthusiasts at Providence Bay, teaching the children about our stream restoration and learning much more at the Discovery Centre. We also joined them for their fun day at Kicking Mule Ranch as we held a small workshop on invertebrate study. Two fun filled days for all!
Congratulations to the Little Current Fish and Game Club for 50 years of protecting & improving our fisheries and wildlife resources and educating our youth in conservation! Great time held by all at their 50th anniversary dinner!
An exciting day as we dropped off fishing rods and reels to the grade 4 classes at Junior P.S. in Wikwemikong. The students participated in our Bass Lake Creek Educational Tours and to encourage getting them active outdoors they all received a rod and reel to take home. Thank you Ramakko's Source for Adventure and the Little Current Fish and Game Club for this wonderful partnership and for all the students ~ Happy Fishing!
Great turnout on Wed May 4th at the Fisheries Workshop. Very interesting presentation by George Morgan about emerging Fisheries Issues on Manitoulin Island. Seija Deshchenes from Manitoulin Streams also presented on stream restoration. Thank you to the Little Current Fish and Game Club for partnering with Manitoulin Streams on this event and the Sheguiandah Seniors Hall for their hospitality and evening snacks!
