Meet the Indigenous Youth Circle

The Indigenous Youth Circle collectively represent the next generation of Indigenous stewards and science practitioners all working together to guide wise protocols and practices for the National Urban Park site in Windsor and broader region. Individually they each possess gifts of language, sport, science, culture, and more. They will be training in a range of ecological monitoring practices, learning from Elders and knowledge keepers in the region, while also co-creating and engaging on new programming linked to the development of a proposed National Urban Park site.
