‘Remembering the Children’ Event Being Held at The Healing Place in Shanly October 14th

Shanly – The Healing Place is hosting an event on October 14th in Shanly.

The “Remembering the Children” event will see The Healing Place partners gathering to plant culturally significant trees and plants, create a children’s garden, and share stories to celebrate First Nation culture.

The event will include an opening ceremony with guest speakers. Due to COVID-19, numbers are limited, and pre-registration is required. Part of the event will be live streamed to SNC’s Facebook Page.

A Working Group, through a collaborative partnership, has worked since 2020 to create The Healing Place – a community green space located on the traditional territories of the Algonquin and Mohawk Nations, an 89-acre site located on SNC property in Shanly, Ontario. More than 250 culturally significant trees, shrubs, and other species were planted last September on National Tree Day.

It is home to several grassland Species at Risk, including the Bobolink, Eastern Meadowlark, and locally significant Gorgone Checkerspot butterfly.
