We have a proud history with Camp Miakonda and Erie Shores Council, one that has led to a lasting partnership. Partners for Clean Streams led a habitat restoration project along the banks of the upper Ottawa River (aka 10-Mile Creek) at Camp Miakonda. The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) funded the million-dollar project, which began in 2013.  The project restored stream habitat, reduced erosion, enhanced wetlands, deepened and revitalized Lake Sawyer, and improved upland habitat along the Ottawa River, which directly improved Lake Erie’s western basin.  PCS also installed eight educational signs around the project area in Camp Miakonda that shared with visitors the historical significance of Miakonda, the native wildlife that can be found, and hands-on activities for scouts to do. We’ve equipped the summer camp educators with fun kits to explore macro-invertebrates and learn about water quality. The project we did with Camp Miakonda is something we take pride in, as it was a great success. We are very happy for Camp Miakonda in celebrating 100 years of educational enrichment for Scouts and wish it 100 more! We’ll be on hand to give tours and help celebrate the opening of the brand new nature & wildlife educational center at camp. Come out and join us.
