The Event is Over!
Join us on October 20th and learn about the amazing work First Nations communities are doing to care for species at risk and their habitats! The evening event, generously hosted by Chippewas of the Thames First Nation southwest of London, will include a traditional Anishinaabe welcome ceremony, a full dinner, talks by First Nation Species At Risk programs from across southern Ontario, a keynote presentation by the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation Species At Risk Project team, and a traditional closing ceremony. First Nations from as far away as Manitoulin Island, the Bruce Peninsula and Walpole Island have been invited to showcase their projects with displays, presentations and handout materials. The event will be 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.
