Regional Gathering at Narrows Lake near Athabasca, Alberta
In April 2023, members attended the Indigenous Community Based Monitoring Advisory Committee (ICBMAC)’s Regional Gathering at Narrow Lake near Athabasca, Alberta. Generously sponsored by the Oil Sands Monitoring Program, the event was a valuable opportunity to explore ongoing projects initiated by member communities.
The event showcased knowledge holders from the region, with a special highlight on Jerry Quintal. Jerry, alongside his brother Ronald, graciously shared their extensive knowledge of medicinal plants found in and around Conklin. We will try to make this an annual tradition hosted by different communities.
