“Compassionate Listening” with Conch Konschuh
“Invertebrates of Haida Gwaii: Tarantulas, scorpions, jumping slugs, and zombie worms” with Stu Crawford

Facilitator Christy “Conch” Konschuh will present on Compassionate Listening. Compassionate Listening is a peace making tool useful to those who have survived war, genocide and displacement. The act of Compassionate Listening engages the heart and as with any exercise, creates a positive practice that contributes to understanding and connection.

Biologist Stu Crawford will talk about the terrestrial invertebrates of Haida Gwaii.  We will take a closer look at amazing world of the wiggling and crawling creatures that are all around us.  The talk will be followed by a hands-on session.  There will be microscopes for everyone to use, and lots of specimens to look at.

Update on TimberWest Logging Situation

Mount Moresby Adventure Camp has received overwhelming support from the Council of the Haida Nation, School District 50, and many other community supporters.  Thanks to this high level of support, the word has spread about on the tremendous value of the camp’s programs for the youth of Haida Gwaii and the community as a whole.  The camp wishes to recognize these supporters as vital to protecting its forest-based educational programs.

Yesterday’s announcement by TimberWest to defer logging is an encouraging sign that support for the camp’s outdoor classroom and other forest-based programs extends throughout all sectors of the community. The camp looks forward to learning more details of this announcement, and to the opportunity to work with the interested parties to reach a solution that protects the camp and the lands around it.

We will all stay tuned to determine what the final decision is on this development.

LOGGING THREATENS MOUNT MORESBY ADVENTURE CAMP

The provincial government is expected to approve logging in the small forest immediately beside our camp that we use as our outdoor classroom.  Alongside the Haida Nation, MMAC seeks a solution that would protect this outdoor classroom and maintain the integrity of our lakeside ecosystem.
