Our vision is to educate about the importance of sustainable ecosystems and their importance to reduce pollution and control climate change.


The goal of our microhatchery is to restock rivers and lakes in our community that have been depleted due to fishing. We work with the MNRF and First Nations to raise speckled trout and walleye from an egg to a fry. Our microhatchery also educates students about the biology of fish and preservation of our ecosystems. Secondary actions of our project have enable students to learn about the importance of water flow in rivers, we have partnered with various community groups like Black Creek to help clean up trails and have also commited to build turlte cages to protect their eggs when up until they hatch.
Our goal this year was to promote our microhatchery club at the school. We used your funds from a grant to purchase a GoPro which enabled us to record students depositing the fry into a river in McKerrow. We even had the recording added into a report on MCTV News!

Reflection & Celebration

Over the years we have released over 100 000 fry into rivers around Espanola, this project gives a real sense of purpose to the students as they feel they are making a difference in their community. We have been in several news articles and have also made it on television with a report from MCTV news. We are very proud of what we do and we have a sense of accomplishment every year.
