Congratulations to all our students that participated in our youth trappers course November 9-12th. They experienced what running a trap line is all about, learning about the traps and how to set them, checking the trap line and harvesting the animals and preparing the furs. We are happy to announce that they all passed the exams and are looking forward to getting their fur harvest licence from the MNRF.
This is the first year that 4 out of 6 students were girls attending the course which we were really excited about! Thank you to George Hagen for instructing the students, Gino Cacciotti for cooking and keeping the students well fed and full and Madison Wagnar for participating and being the female chaperone. A huge shout out to OFAH Zone D and the Fur Institute of Canada for helping fund this youth initiative.
With the holidays fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about what to buy for those special someone's. For the people who are hard to buy for, perhaps considering the gift of conservation on Manitoulin Island. With a huge selection of items and prices that can assist in stream restoration, education and assisting wildlife, we've got you covered!
Last week we connected with College Boreal to complete electro-fishing assessments on our stream restoration projects. These assessments help identify species in the water either before or after stages of restoration. For most of these students, our projects are their first attempt at hands on electro-fishing.
This partnership not only helps them further their education, it also helps with tracking information we would otherwise have to come up with funds for. Thank you to Andre and his class for assisting us!
