Access to community and culture. Hikes through the shade of the pine trees. Long afternoons on the dock at the cottage. This is why the health of the boreal forest impacts us all.
The boreal trees, water, and wildlife that span most of Manitoba are threatened by logging, mining, hydropower and oil and gas extraction.
What does this mean?
It means the livelihood of Indigenous communities that have lived in the boreal for thousands of years is in jeopardy. Our climate change safety net has larger and larger holes. Shrinking habitats and endangered species slowly slipping away.
How do we stop this?
A connection to nature and knowledge are powerful tools in the conservation of the boreal forest. Educators - we need YOUR help! Help us create awareness for Manitoba’s largest ecosystem and reconnect a generation of youth that are more and more disengaged from nature.
