Carolinian Canada sponsored a participant for the Youth Summit for Biodiversity and Environmental Leadership, which brought together 95 youth from 57 communities across Ontario. Teens had the opportunity to participate in pollinator and wildflower workshops, discussions about how to ‘be the change’, canoeing and much more. In one participant’s words, “the Youth Summit was one of the best weekends of my LIFE! I got to get out and explore in nature, learn about the earth and water and how we are all interconnected.”

On the evening of October 20, more than 130 people convened at the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation Community Centre to learn about the amazing work First Nations communities are doing to care for species at risk and their habitats across Ontario. The evening event was generously hosted by Chippewas of the Thames First Nation southwest of London, and presented as part of Carolinian Canada’s Ecosystem Recovery Forum series, with funding support from Environment Canada. First Nations from as far away as Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island and Neyaashiinigmiing on the Bruce Peninsula showcased their species at risk projects with presentations and displays. Young conservationists from Aamjiwnaang and Chippewas of the Thames First Nations showcased the multifaceted activities of the “Antler River Guardians from the Four Directions” youth group over the past year. Bkejwanong (Walpole Island) First Nation presentations emphasized the strong linkages between nature preservation, traditions and language in local Anishinaabe culture. The event was a unique sharing of traditional knowledge, modern science and practical on-the-ground conservation practices -- a wonderful learning experience for all, set in the heart of Ontario's Carolinian life zone.

Carolinian Canada staff are thrilled to welcome Karolyne Pickett as our new Carolinian Zone Ecologist.  Karolyne brings a wealth of biological experience to our team, notably with species at risk-related work with both the federal and provincial governments.  Karolyne enjoys working with people from all walks of life and will be playing an important role with our Landowner Leaders program over the coming months.
