Quetico Foundation’s 2016 Meeting & Celebration of the Season – Thanking and awarding Peter Dalglish
At Quetico Foundation’s 2016 Meeting & Celebration of the Season in December, we took the opportunity to thank Peter Dalglish for his significant contribution to the Foundation over the past 25 years – and presented him with a Quetico Foundation commemorative paddle made by XY Paddles. Thank you Peter!
Thursday November 3rd from 5:00-10:00 pm, The Quetico Foundation is once again partnering with the Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund (TSCBF) for the annual Art Show to be held at the Storys Building, 11 Duncan Street near the corner of King and Duncan!
This year’s show ‘Shapes and Sizes’ will be profiling approximately 150 works inspired by the province’s great outdoor spaces, landscapes, cities and towns, including featured artists –Steve McDonald, David Marshak, and Elzbieta Krawecka.
Our art collection from our Artists in Residence will be in the show!
Please come out, have fun, buy and see great art and get together with colleagues and friends with food, drink, appetizers and a great evening that is widely appreciated, helps young minds and young leaders, helps protection and appreciation of our wilderness and helps gives young people the chance to go to camp and experience Ontario’s great outdoors.
This summer, throughout May, June, July and August, Quetico Foundation’s Student Summer Research Program team and our biology intern team studied invasive species, monitored songbirds, studied blister-resistant white pines, as well as ecosystem and aquatic ecology monitoring! This year marks the 20th anniversary of our Student Summer Research Program and the 10th anniversary of the Biology Intern program!
The students had a great time, discovered and studied quite a few species and had the chance to study and explore a diversity of habitats in Quetico’s wilderness.

Thirty canoeists attended Quetico Foundation’s Canoe Day. We canoed along the Big Creek valley through the Carolinian forest with its verdant trillium carpet and flowering trees, past rolling landscapes with streams and wetlands that feed the headwaters of the Big Creek National Wildlife Area.
Many genuine thanks to each canoeist and everyone for your support of the Quetico Foundation’s Student Summer Research Program on our paddle along Big Creek, Saturday May 7, 2016. As well as for good, wholesome and fun conversations and great canoeing among a great group.
of the Giving Season is December 1st ! Giving Tuesday is a day when charities, corporations and individuals join together to share commitment, celebrate activities that support charities and non profit organizations, rally for their favourite causes, and give something back.
What a great opportunity for us to ‘give back’ to our supporters – that’s you!
First, we want to give a huge THANK YOU for enabling us to deliver the research and education programs in Quetico Park that we do – helping us to add value to wilderness protection in Ontario!
Second, we want to give you a view into the impact that your dollars have in Quetico Park and protection of its wilderness:
“The Quetico Foundation is a strong voice for Quetico, Ontario’s oldest Wilderness Park. And the Foundation goes beyond being a voice and supports Quetico on the ground through its important science and education based programs such as the John B. Ridley Research Library, the Artist in Residence Program, the Ridley Wilderness Youth Program, and the Summer Student Research Program. The Foundation’s ongoing support for research and monitoring contributes greatly towards our capacity to monitor and maintain the Ecological Integrity of Quetico Provincial Park.”
Trevor Gibb, Superintendent, Quetico Park
