Building a Community Forest for #NAD2017 in Thunder Bay, Ontario

Tuesday, June 06, 2017 9:53 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Science North Thunder Bay team will be taking part in the National Aboriginal Day (NAD) celebrations in Thunder Bay again this year. Science North will be setting up hands-on activities that will inspire youth to get involved in science, while connecting them to their culture and the natural world around them. 

The team will be “building a community forest,” which is a group project where people of ages will better understand the interconnectedness of people with their natural surroundings. Visitors interact with the “forest wall” by adding a component of nature to it and thanking it for the gifts it has to share. 

The Science North Bluecoat team will be on hand to open up discussions and sharing that pertain to that component, as well as communicating relevant science facts about it.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek.
