Elders & Youth: Learning from the Land & Waters

On the Land Elders and Youth is a program with the intent on the study of Climate change and how it affects the Slave River and surrounding ecosystems. 

AAROM plays a small part in this program doing the water, fish, and Benthic sampling in set locations about mid way between Fort Smith and Fort Resolution.

This year we took Elders and Youth from all 3 communities from July 09th -15th and showed them how to sample and collect data for each monitoring site along the river. There is also Vegetation and Slope (bank erosion) monitoring locations. 

We heard Traditional Knowledge stories and historical facts from our Elders regarding climate change and they observed ways the river system has changed over the years they have traveled it.
