Please join us for a presentation on the

Mnijikaning Fish Weirs
with Janet Turner & Elder Mark Douglas

 7 pm on Wednesday, February 12th

Janet Turner is an educator with the S.C.D.S.B. and a former

Together they will present archaeological, historical and aboriginal stories of this millennia old National Historical Site located at Atherley Narrows in Orillia. As well, they will discuss the preservation and  protection of the 1000s of wooden stakes embedded in the silt and a proposed interpretive centre and bridge at ‘The Narrows’ that will foster awareness of the site’s spiritual and cultural importance to the Huron and Anishnabek who harvested fish there.
