Congratulations to Bill Strain, Little Current Fish and Game Club and Manitoulin Streams Board of Director, for being awarded the Larry Wallace Memorial Award for youth conservation education. Bill Strain received this award from the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. Mr. Wallace was a long time member of OFAH who worked with young people with regards to conservation.
Bill Strain is being acknowledged for the educational program that he has developed and implemented on Manitoulin Island with the youth of our communities creating future stewards of the land. Kudos!
On Monday November 4th, 2013 Bill Strain from the Little Current Fish and Game Club presented Ted Williamson with a cheque for $1000 as an open donation for Manitoulin Streams.
Our partnership with the Little Current Fish and Game Club has been a great pleasure and we thank them for their support!
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!
