Happy World Water Day! Hope everyone takes some time today to consider how important it is to have clean, fresh water to drink, bath and to enjoy outdoor recreational activities. Manitoulin Streams continues to improve the streams and rivers on Manitoulin Island. We will be conducting some stream cleanups this spring so keep and eye out for the upcoming dates. We were recently highlighted in Wild Northerner Magazine Spring Edition!

Just a reminder to everyone that tax time is around the corner and Manitoulin Streams is a charitable organization. We can provide charitable receipts for donations made to our organization. 100% of all proceeds stay on Manitoulin Island and go toward our stream restoration efforts. Thank you in advance!
We are excited to once again provide Assiginack P.S. with a small micro-hatchery that is meant to raise the eyed egg brook trout (part of 10,000 eggs) that were too small to be placed in the Scotty trays from Decembers' event. These eggs have now hatched and have absorbed most of their yolk sack, and are now being fed. In a couple months, these little guys will be released into Nortons Creek along with the other brook trout that had hatched in the trays. This initiative is part of our educaitonal approach to provide a hands on learning for the grade 3/4 class, and will give them scientific experience at documenting and observing. Thanks to Delmer Fields for the use of his equipment and helping to set up!
What a way to kick off the winter with our annual Eyed Egg Brook Trout Event! Many volunteers showed to help place 10,000 eggs into Scotty Box trays. M’Chigeeng’s Lakeview School grade 7/8 and Wikwemikong’s Pontiac School grade 4/5 attended this fabulous educational session and volunteered their time.
10 Scotty Box trays were placed in Norton’s Creek following placement of eggs. Thanks again to all volunteers that showed for this event and to Bob Florean for taking time to educate the kids on the importance of this project. A special thanks Les and Delmer Fields for all their work organizing the even as well as the food and treats enjoyed by all and to the Hutton Family for allowing us to use their property to host the event!

Thank you again to College Boreal and Laurentian University - Living with Lakes Center for helping gather fisheries and invertebrate information at sites on Norton's Creek, Mindemoya River, Kaboni Creek and Grimesthorpe Creek. These are great partnerships to have and great opportunities for young College students to learn stream assessment techniques in the field
