Join us in working toward Stewardship of our Natural Resources and Proud Heritage

This name was chosen to honour those who originated on this land and to indicate our location by the lake, signifying that we work with aquatic habitat concerns, shoreline issues and land-based environmental initiatives


Our Mandate and Mission

We want to share the enjoyment and importance of living in harmony with nature by providing eco-educational experiences to engage the community in:

  • balancing human needs with the needs of nature in our everyday lives
  • discovering plants, animals and water life
  • becoming stewards of our water, land and air
  • working towards a sustainable ecosystem for future generations

Goals and Outcomes:

  • Effective environmental education
  • Modeling environmentally responsible practices
  • Combining experiential learning and classroom learning
  • Care, concern, actions in our place of living

 Our work includes:

  • Education and hands-on demonstrations of ecologically sound practices related to water, lakes, lakeshores and upland areas.
  • GAMIING works with individuals, community groups and other interested parties to further understanding of and participation in practices that balance human needs with the needs of wildlife and natural ecosystems
  • Capacity building to move forward stewardship of natural resources through collaboration with partners and other community groups. Stewardship in this context is the wise use of our natural resources and care of these resources for future generations by communities who understand the importance and are actively engaged.
