The Emerald Summit

Our Emerald Summit is shaping up to be a must-attend event!

Ontario’s retiring Environmental Commissioner Gord Miller is going to be there, along with Curve Lake First Nation Chief Phyllis Williams, former Ontario Minister of the Environment Ruth Grier, Elder Doug Williams, the director of Trent University’s Indigenous Studies Ph.D program, and Dorothy Taylor, an Ojibwe Anishinaabe Traditional Knowledge Holder. They’re coming together with an expert panel to discuss the environmental and cultural significance of the largely unprotected Land Between – a region of unsurpassed beauty and biodiversity that encompasses the north shore of Stony Lake – and to consider strategies for conserving our green spaces.

We hope you’ll join us! What: Emerald Summit: Protecting our Green Spaces When: Saturday, June 6th, 1 – 5 pm (presentations from 2 – 4:30 pm; refreshments to follow) Where: Viamede Resort, Stony Lake, 595 Mount Julian Road, Woodview, Ontario. While the event is free, seating is limited. Please let us know if you plan to attend by clicking here, or via emeraldjune6th@gmail.com
