Thanks to all who participated in this year's netting clinic, held Friday May 6th. Students from four area schools got a taste of this important spring harvest; and participated in a discussion on Treaty Rights, learned some Anishinaabemowin during the blessing, reviewed watercraft safety, pulled the catch from the nets, and got a filet demonstration. Everyone got to share a taste of the day's catch during lunch!! Check out the pictures and video from the day.
