Every Child Matters! Working with the Wiikwemkoong Board of Education, Lands and Tourism to get students back to land-based learning and restoring their community stream. Reconciliation starts with everyone trying to do their part to give back and improve the lives of our Indigenous friends and community members!

Yesterday was World Rivers Day! Today in recognition Manitoulin Secondary School students will be engaged in a student water walk! Let's all do our part and do one thing to improve the rivers and streams in our area!
It's been a busy month and a half! We have been working in Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory on Smith Bay Creek. A microburst during the Cultural Pow Wow Festival in 2019 caused severe damage to trees along the creek blocking fish migration to spawning areas. Manitoulin Streams has been working on removing the felled trees and using them to create fish habitat; grading eroding shoreline to prevent erosion and sedimentation over spawning habitat; installing boulder clusters; adding additional spawning gravel and creating pools and riffle areas to improve fish habitat. We have also been working with Wasse-Abin Junior School, Pontiac School and Wiikwemkoong high school planting trees and shrubs to help stabilize the shoreline banks (pictures to follow). #manitoulinstreams, #wiikwemkoong, #streamrestoration, #wikwemikongtourism, #wiikwemkoongboardofeducation, #everychildmatters
