Once again, following our Annual Eyed Egg Brook Trout event, we take the eggs that were too small for the Scotty box trays (that had fallen through) and set them up in their new temporary home at a mini-hatchery at Assiginack Public School in Manitowaning. Each year one of the grades are chosen to be the “champions” of raising these fish and assisting in releasing them in early spring into Norton's Creek, a locally restored stream. The kids will learn monitoring and keeping favourable conditions for these fish to hatch, providing educational experiences that are key to forming stewardship attitudes in our youth. Many thanks to Rolly Frappier and Bob Florean for their support in these efforts.
We had another successful youth trappers course held this fall. Thank you to OFAH Zone D and the Fur Institute of Canada for helping sponsor these 6 youth. Also thank you to George Hagen for instructing and Gino Cacciotti for volunteering his time to make sure it ran smoothly. Congratulations everyone!
Thank you to everyone that came out on Friday to help stock the brook trout eggs into the Scotty boxes. It was a beautiful December day and the students from Pontiac School and Central Manitoulin Public School had a wonderful day walking up Norton's Creek. A special thank you to Les & Delmer Fields, Alice and Burke Pennie and Sue Moggy for all your help and the wonderful feast that you provided for the students!
