Land and Wildlife are no longer effectively managed at the community level: Let’s get back to the Land and our Communities. Let’s get back to grassroots!

Share observations. Meet new allies.

Anglers, Beekeepers, Bait fish operators, Farmers, Foresters, Gardeners, Hunters, Road crews, Naturalists….


What is the state of our resources? Are wildlife populations sustainable? Is our land productive? Help us chart the state of our community’s land and wildlife.  Talking Circles will be held this fall in 4 Catchment areas, on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.

More and more, lands and resources are managed at regional scales, and often without the benefit of local knowledge. The people who work with the land know our land intimately. They’ve seen the numbers of animals on roads, animals hatched, and those harvested. They have witnessed changes to our soil, water, and wildlife habitats that are causing big problems for everyone living on the land. To find solutions to these problems, let’s call on our most experienced allies: farmers, hunters, anglers, loggers, beekeepers, gardeners, kayakers, and hikers….


Indigenous Talking Circles are an ancient and traditional way of sharing knowledge, finding solutions, and building community. This tool is a central part of the Knowledge Circles Project, delivering a grassroots model of community leadership across the Land Between region from Georgian Bay to Ottawa Valley.
This project will give a voice to the people and the land and will result in renewed relationships and capacity within our communities.
