Our community is committed to protecting and preserving the natural environment. We must all be good stewards of our planet and take an active role to protect our environment. We are seeing the effects of climate change in Northern Manitoba, and in 2010 the summer was extremely dry and it was the worst fire season on record. Besides the record forest fires, low water levels in lakes, dying fish and brackish water were all symptoms of the unnaturally dry conditions.

Please be careful with your trash and dispose of it only in designated cans or at the dump. Please pick up litter that you find along the roadway, in the bush, or along the lakeshore. It is not unusual to find rusty tin cans from past generations, and if you find a large amount of garbage in the bush, please report it so that volunteers can clean it up. We would eventually like to see the area, especially along the roadway, free of debris.

Prayer of the Woods
I am the heat of your hearth on the cold winter nights, the friendly shade screening you from the summer sun, and my fruits are refreshing draughts quenching your thirst as you journey on.
I am the beam that holds your house, the board of your table, the bed on which you lie, and the timber that builds your boat.
I am the handle of your hoe, the door of your homestead, the wood of your cradle, and the shell of your coffin.
I am the bread of kindness and the flower of beauty. 'Ye who pass by, listen to my prayer: Harm me not.
(This prayer has been used in the Portuguese forest preservations for more than 1,000 years.)
