Toronto High School Students get a Taste of Atikokan and Quetico Park

Atikokan Progress,

Monday August 31 2015,

Jessica Smith

Six Toronto high school students toured Atikokan and met with members of Town Council before heading into Quetico Park, Wednesday.

The canoe trip, which ends today with their arrival at French Lake, is part of a leadership development course specializing in wilderness stewardship and urban citizenship. The Quetico Foundation, as a partner, provides the ecological research component.

The route took the students and trip leaders, Torie Gervais and Shayne Gordon from Stanton Bay through Oliphant, Sturgeon, and Russell Lakes, accompanied by Quetico Park biologist Brian Jackson and the Foundation’s summer intern Kiara Gannon.

Jackson and Gannon were assisting students with in-field research of the park’s ecology and heritage sites, including study of a wetland site at the mouth of the Pickerel River.

The Quetico Foundation’s Ridley Wilderness Youth Program has seen secondary students from southern Ontario trip in the park each summer for many years now, but the structure changed somewhat last year. QF now provides a portion of the wilderness/environmental component to a six-week intensive summer program run by Toronto’s arts and culture organization Trinity Theater Program (TTP).

Biology Internship Program reported in Atikokan Progress

Atikokan Progress,

Monday August 31 2015,

M.McKinnon

In addition to the Ridley Wilderness Youth Program, the Quetico Foundation sponsored a biology intern this summer to work with Park biologist Brian Jackson (he moved over from his position as area biologist earlier this year).

Kiara Gannon, who will enter her second year of biology studies at the University of Victoria shortly, worked 16 weeks this summer, mostly in the Park.

While Gannon was based at the area office in town, most of her summer was spent doing field work in the Park – hands-on, front-line biology – usually gathering data for several long-term monitoring projects. The involved several different extended trips into the Park.

To monitor songbirds, the biologists would set up recording devicesl the tapes go to bird song experts, who can identify species based on the call. The listened for ruffed grouse drumming. They searched for snowshoe hare scat (not too successfully); the animals are quite common at French Lake, however).
