The AAROM Program is officially moved into 19 Brooks Lane in Millbrook, or as it’s affectionately known, “The Little House”.
The moving boxes are unpacked and our sleeves are rolled up.  We are continuing with research and education projects about Species at Risk, habitat restoration, traditional foods, pollution, contaminants and much more.
Along with a new address, the AAROM also has a new name: Mi’kmaw Conservation Group.
The mission of the Mi’kmaw Conservation Group is “to promote and restore the concept of Netuklimk in the Fundy Watershed”.
But what does this mean?
Netuklimk is the use of the natural bounty provided by the Creator for the self-support and well-being of the individual and the community.
Netuklimk means using what you need today and making sure there is some left for tomorrow.
It is an exciting time as we set to work on projects, partnerships and gather information about what conservation ideas are important to you & your community.
Do you have ideas, stories or photos about how you interact with the natural world that you would like us to share?
We would love to hear from you.
