When we talk about climate change, the focus is often on the weather. In northern Ontario, for example, climate change will bring warmer temperatures, changes in the amount of rain and snow, and more storms, many of which will be intense.
But these changes aren’t the end of the story.
Climate change has a ripple effect across the landscape, affecting forests and plants, lakes and rivers, animals, people, and communities. For First Nation communities, close traditional ties to the land can make these changes even more impactful.
Explore the graphic to discover some of the ways that climate change can impact First Nation communities in northern Ontario and the land they rely on.
Another day of phragmites removal at Burnt Island during phragmites week! The stands of phragmites are close to 15ft feet tall. If you are interested in getting involved contact the Manitoulin Phragmites Group! Let's keep working on controlling this invasive reed!
This is a reminder not to transport your boats from the big water to our inland lakes! By doing this you may be transferring invasive species into our local water bodies which will dramatically affect our aquatic ecosystems and native species.
