2019 Indigenous Lands & Resource Management Conference
Yesterday, a Westwind staff attended the 2019 Indigenous Lands & Resource Management Conference at the Stockey Centre in Parry Sound. There were many great speakers highlighting projects and research happening in First Nations throughout the area. We learned about local endangered species and habitat restoration. One consistent theme of the day was creating educational opportunities to share this information with other people particularly future generations. It was fantastic to see the collaboration and sharing of knowledge that is happening between First Nations, universities, and other partners.
