Recently, RBC-Evergreen has sent out a challenge for schools to participate in their Watershed Champions Award efforts. Mindemoya Public School had Manitoulin Streams do a watershed restoration talk to their grade 4/5 class in order to commence their application for this challenge. The students were entranced by Sue Meert's slideshow and presentation, and all were eager to participate and share their streamside stories. Good Luck Mindemoya Public School!
Can you see the salmon that was carved on this granite rock by Michael Belmore? It gives the illusion of jumping out of the water along the Kagawong River. Thank you once again to 4elements Living Arts and Michael Belmore for working with Manitoulin Streams on this restoration project. A beautiful carving viewed on this gorgeous day!
On March 9, 2016 Manitoulin Streams and Assiginack P.S. made a trip out to Norton's Creek outside of Manitowaning, to release the brook trout raised in the Micro Hatchery that was set up at the school. It was a rainy day but we had little rain for the duration of our adventure. A huge thank you to Rolly Frappier and Bob Florean of the United Walleye Club for helping us set up this successful project!
Looking for a summer job? Manitoulin Streams in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) will be hosting an Invasive Species Community Outreach Liaison for Manitoulin Island (dependent upon external funding yet to be received by OFAH). Resumes and the information sheet attached are to be sent to OFAH no later than April 17th 2016. Good luck!
A great way to spend a weekend! Manitoulin Streams partnered with 4 Elements to assist in guiding their field guide making crew on an educational walk along the Kagawong River. A beautiful overcast day turned this walk into a winter wonderland. Thanks again to 4 Elements for including us on this fabulous venture.
Looking for something to do this weekend? How about a guided snowshoe tour along Norton's Creek in Manitowaning, or one of our other rehabilitated streams on the island! Contact Sue Meert for further information at (705) 859-1653.
A special thank you to Mr. Killens for this nomination. We love working with all the school groups across Manitoulin Island and thank you to the Hutton Family that have created an outdoor classroom for us to use on Norton's Creek!
