Wow! Get to Know had a great week at Pukaskwa National Park, a beautiful natural area along the northern shores of Lake Superior that boasts miles of hiking, pristine moose habitat, and unique Arctic microhabitats that give rise to a stunning variety of fauna like the encrusted saxifrage.
All week, students from Pic River Elementary School had the chance to really immerse themselves in a mix of wildlife viewing, cultural knowledge, and physical activity. To make everything amazing, Get to Know had a whole range of individuals help us out with unique activities.
The head of Pukaskwa took us out on a traditional trip through the woods, while helpful youth staff helped the young ones with arts and crafts that captured the local (highly endangered) woodland caribou. A wildlife interpreter took out us out on the amazing rocky shoreline of the Southern Headland Trail, where we saws lots of bird life and dark mosses (which were recorded in our booklets). A seamless combination of art and wildlife!
