We would like to invite you to the 2023 Forum, April 28 – 30, themed on biodiversity. We feel that the timing is right following the United Nations Convention of the Parties on biodiversity meetings in Montreal in December, 2022.

To learn more about the Forum and watch the trailer for Friday evening’s film

To prepare for your participation in the Forum please read our Biodiversity Primer, designed to provide you with the background you need to fully participate in the Forum!


Ontario’s Biodiversity Strategy is for all of us – help update it!

Ontario’s Biodiversity Strategy guides actions across the province to restore and conserve biodiversity. The Ontario Biodiversity Council wants to know what you think about the strategy. You can share your thoughts until March 27, 2023.

If you’ve been to our new Seabins Project page, you may have noticed a lot of opportunities to “learn more“. This is where we’ve been posting additional information about the seabins – what they do, how they work – but also a lot of new articles and information about the impacts of plastics!

See what’s new – like the video How Bad is Plastic and other resources.

The Sources of Knowledge Forum is intended to demonstrate how research in Bruce Peninsula National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, the surrounding community, and beyond can contribute to knowledge and understanding of the Saugeen-Bruce Peninsula.

In an effort to further the Sources of Knowledge goal to encourage and enable youth to be stewards of this remarkable place, we also administer an annual Student Bursary Award in partnership with Parks Canada. This bursary program has allowed us to help local students finance their post-secondary education, in areas of conservation and related themes, to work toward a prospective career with Parks Canada.

Our SoK Talk initiative aims to provide ongoing opportunities, outside of the Forum, to share knowledge on a wide variety of special interest topics. Subjects from the past, present, and future that help propagate continuous learning and understanding of the Peninsula and its people.

We acknowledge that SoK operates on the Territory of the Anishinabek Nation: The People of the Three Fires known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. And we further give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, known collectively as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land.
