SHARING AND CREATING KNOWLEDGE

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.

Parks Canada and Ontario Parks together manage close to 1,000 parks and protected areas across the province. As many know, visitation has risen significantly over the past decade and even more so since the covid emergency. The two agencies are committed to better managing visitors in our places and most of all, encouraging visitors to plan ahead before they visit busy places like Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park in Tobermory. – #ForTheLoveOfParks: 5 Ways To Help Keep Parks Clean And Safe This Year


Both Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park have experienced the strain from high visitation including disrespect to Parks staff and more garbage – 10 large bags of garbage were removed from Flowerpot Island this past Saturday!
