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.

Opening Day…

of the Giving  Season is December 1stGiving 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

We had an exceptional evening at the annual Quetico Foundation-Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund art show. Many many thanks to the Artists in Residence who donated their pieces, to the great people behind the TSCBF, to the Storys Building, to our Quetico Foundation supporters and to everyone who came out. We really appreciate your support! It was great to help provide further support to the Quetico Foundation’s programs, help send interested young people to camp, wonderful to have great conversations, meet some new faces, make new associates and see old friends. We can’t thank you enough for helping to protect the legacy of our wilderness and natural areas.
