On Monday November 4th, 2013 Bill Strain from the Little Current Fish and Game Club presented Ted Williamson with a cheque for $1000 as an open donation for Manitoulin Streams.
Our partnership with the Little Current Fish and Game Club has been a great pleasure and we thank them for their support!
On November 2nd a wonderful group of 26 volunteers showed up for the first M’Chigeeng Community River Cleanup. Lyndsay Taibossigai coordinator with Right to Play organized volunteers from the community, Lakeview School students and Manitoulin Streams.
We gathered behind the arena for a blessing and teaching on the importance of water. We then split up to clean up different portions of the river. It was amazing what we found and the hard work put in by the volunteers removing it. The students of Lakeview School and their teacher Connie Freeman have spearheaded the restoration efforts on this river to improve the water quality, fish and aquatic habitat. Kudos to all of those that helped out!
Manitoulin Streams was approached by the grade 8 students of Lakeview School to help them restore West Bay Creek which resides within their community of M’Chigeeng. We started out last year with some stream walks and talks and this year we started getting baseline information about the stream conducting invertebrate and fish assessments with Laurentian University and College Boreal.
The students will be documenting their efforts over the next couple of years as we work together towards restoring the fish and aquatic habitat along this watercourse.
