Kebaowek First Nation
Water First staff and our Kebaowek First Nations Fish Habitat Restoration interns visited G. Théberge School in Témiscaming, Québec to share the details of our fish habitat remediation project with students. Children and youth from Kebaowek First Nation are bused to this school, so it was great to share with them the positive work being completed by our organization and their fellow community members. Afterward, our education staff delivered hands-on water science workshops to each grade in the school that were thematically and conceptually linked to the project.
The interns also assisted with the workshops and were able to share their expertise in the water science field with the students. Interns Kacey McLaren, McKaylii Jawbone, and Ivan Pulchinski served as role models to the students, sharing their experience and professional opportunities available in the environmental science field. We thank G. Théburge School for being such wonderful hosts, and we are delighted to share our passion for environmental stewardship and water science with the staff and students!
