Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Day in Keewaywin

On February 2, 2017, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry staff made the trip up to Keewaywin from Red Lake to spend the day with staff and students from Keewaywin School. Staff and students were able to learn about biodiversity, orienteering, and wildlife management. Jenene Shearer, MNRF Resource Liaison Specialist stated that the "Red Lake District Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry would like to send our thanks for having us come and visit the Keewaywin School. We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed our time with the students. Hope we get a chance to visit Keewaywin again soon."

Tom Doherty, KOBE Student Retention Lead states that "Partnerships such as those with organizations like the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry are very important for our KOBE Schools and the KOBE communities to establish, as they provide a connection for the students to the various organizations that serve their communities."
