 Camp Pathfinder Indigenous Campership Award

 Camp Pathfinder, Algonquin Park, is very excited to announce the Camp Pathfinder Indigenous Campership Award, developed in partnership with Waaseyaa Consulting, an Algonquin-owned Indigenous heritage and culture consulting company.

 The award is open to Indigenous male applicants between the ages of 10-14, to attend a Camp Pathfinder session of two weeks or three and a half weeks in the summer of 2020.

 Pathfinder, a summer camp for boys located on Source Lake, lies in unceded Algonquin territory at the headwaters of the Madawaska River in Algonquin Park. Established in 1914 by Rochester, NY educators Franklin Gray and William Bennett, Pathfinder has been in continuous operation ever since. Campers in summer, and students during the school year, attend Pathfinder from across North America and all over the world.

Current Pathfinder owners Glenn Arthurs and Mike Sladden, themselves alumni, have continued to steward the camp on Pathfinder Island as a simple, technology-free outpost. From this unique community in the heart of world-famous Algonquin Provincial Park, Pathfinder trippers explore the backcountry throughout Ontario and Quebec. Since 2008, the camp’s distant canoe trips to James and Hudson Bays have actively collaborated with Indigenous families and communities in the Bay region, allowing campers to visit with and learn about northern Indigenous communities. In 2018, Pathfinder extended its outreach to the camp’s Algonquin neighbors.

The Camp Pathfinder Indigenous Campership Award Application Package, attached, includes:

1.   About Camp Pathfinder

2.   Indigenous Campership Award Eligibility Criteria

3.   Campership Application

Forest Gene Conservation Association (FGCA) – Seed Collection Workshops

  Increasing Seed Supply in Ontario

Since 1994, one of FGCA’s core goals has been to increase the supply of high-quality, source-identified seed of Ontario’s native woody species. Source-identified seeds are critical to optimizing forest restoration so that the trees planted live for a long time. This principle is true whether it be one tree in your urban yard or 10,000 trees to help restore a rural watershed.

 

Seed Collection Workshops

  Ontario’s Natural Selections is a voluntary, woody plant seed source certification program of the Forest Gene Conservation Association (FGCA). Seeds and plants sold under this label are certified by the FGCA to be from the identified source, so consumers can decide where it will grow best. We focus on the education of consumers, seed collectors and growers for better planting success. Growers adhering to Ontario’s Natural Selections are listed in the Society of Ecological Restoration’s 6th Native Plant Resource Guide for Ontario (2011).

  2-day CSC Workshop

  This workshop is the full CSC curriculum including classroom learning with seed samples and potentially, a hands-on experience with an organized seed collection in the local area. Participants learn about:

·      What it takes to be a seed collector

·      Ontario’s natural forest types and ecological niche of major species

·      Current market demand and major seed buyers/growers

·      Current afforestation and restoration programs using source-identified seed

·      Flower and seed biology, reproductive cycles and environmental effects

·      Genetic diversity and adaptive variation with woody species

·      Ontario’s current Seed Zone or Transfer policies

·      Physiological seed quality: cut tests, maturity indicators, insects and disease

·      Seedlot registration information and the chain of custody

·      Seed forecasting

·      Collection methods

·      Field storage and shipping best practices

  1-day Mentoring Workshop

·      For new CSCs that want more experience before handling their own contracts with seed buyers. Trainers review the key objectives of the CSC program but dive deeper into practical aspects of seed collection planning, field storage and shipping.

·      For existing CSCs who want to learn about additional species.

·      For people who want to invest in one day before deciding if full certification is something they want.

  To apply for the workshops please fill out the form located on the bottom of their website here to be notified of upcoming workshops in your area. Attendance is a minimum of 15 people and a maximum of 25 in a regional area.
