Learning from Elders and shared by teachers about the land, Indigenous knowledge gathered, and how community can be brought together under the theme of conservation, is a priority of this IPCA.

Working with Rossignol Elementary and Rossignol High School in Île-à-la-Crosse, in collaboration and with support from organizations such as the Gabriel Dumont Institute, CPAWS, and Ducks Unlimited, the Sakitawak Conservation Area project is developing a locally produced resource guide for use in site-specific conservation land based curriculum.

To ensure long term sustainability, engaging local students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and including Adult Learning will be key in the development of an education program and teaching tools that the community creates, champions and shares with others.

Here is a National Film Board of Canada film on the Boreal to help understand the beauty of this natural environment and why it’s so important to protect it, and to support those who have been protecting it all along.
