Northern College signs MOU to improve Porcupine Lake ecosystem

November 6, 2020
Northern College, the City of Timmins, and The Friends of the Porcupine River Watershed have signed a MOU to improve the environmental conditions around Porcupine Lake. The five-year partnership will see an increase in a variety of environmental activities and plans, including community-based workshops, fish and wildlife counts, and the planting of a memorial garden and an Indigenous sacred garden. “Seeing the ways in which we can work together with the teachings of those both here now and before us to improve the circumstances of this lake and the watershed it feeds will be intrinsic to continued wellness being sought in all that we do here at Northern,” stated Lillian Trapper, Chair of the Northern College Indigenous Council on Education (NCICE).
