Land Acknowledgement

Natural Pathways acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations (comprised of the Ojibway, the Odawa, and the Potawatomi Peoples) and of the Huron-Wendat Peoples.

As an organization of people from many different backgrounds, we strive to deepen our connection to this Land. We are grateful for the Sycamore, Maple, Black Walnut, and Shagbark Hickory that come together to sustain us. We are grateful for the Raccoon, Deer, Fox, Eagle, and countless Song Birds that grace us with a glimpse or evidence of their presence. We are grateful for the Centipedes, Moths, Butterflies, Bees, Ants, Worms, Spiders, Dragonflies, Frogs, and Toads who allow us in their home. To the sacred waters that surround us and the pond that explodes with life we are thankful.

We honour the traditional inhabitants and those who live here today by entering the space with respect and stewardship. We are committed and it is our hope to create awareness of the importance of Nature Connection. Connection to the Land and all beings from the ant, to the tree, from the Fox and Deer to each person all across Turtle Island, we are all family.

Natural Pathways Learning Centre would like to announce that we are one of the recipients of the Resilient Communities Fund from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the non-profit sector and its ability to support and serve communities across Ontario. With our grant of $73,400 over the next year, we will rebuild from the effects of COVID -19 so we are able to meet the needs of our community. We are extremely grateful for this opportunity to rebuild and forge resilience.
