Restoration sites selected in Long Point First Nation

  • 1 min read

The Environmental Water team’s latest collaboration with Long Point First Nation, is continuing to evolve. In consultation with the community, two sites have been identified for a walleye habitat restoration project, and two youth have been hired to work alongside Water First staff. A local mentor position is still set to be hired soon.

Approvals have been enthusiastically received from both the community and the Ministère des Forêts, Faune et Parcs to begin the project which will weave many learning components into the process of the restoration.

This fall, partners from Long Point, Kebaowek, Kitigan Zibi First Nations will participate in Canadian Aquatic Biomonitoring Network (CABIN) training. This training is part of a collaboration between Living Lakes Canada and WWF (along with Water First and Ottawa Riverkeeper) to increase the collection of water quality and benthic macroinvertebrate data for major watersheds in Canada.
