This webinar will give an overview of some of activities the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) enforcement staff have been undertaking on an annual basis to help prevent the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species including promoting awareness of the rules and inspections to confirm whether the rules are being adhered to. This webinar will be presented by Brenda Koenig, Provincial Enforcement Specialist for the MNRF.
Presented by David Dutkiewicz from the Invasive Species Centre, this webinar will focus on the history of European Gypsy Moth and its subsequent arrival into Ontario in the 1980s. It will also discuss the current affected areas throughout Canada, and the areas where gypsy moth has the potential to spread. Lastly, this webinar will examine best management options for gypsy moth and the measures landowners can take to help slow the spread and protect our forests.

The members-only Indigenous Climate Network is an interactive platform for members to connect, share ideas and leverage resources. The network is expected to officially launch in the fall. Please visit the website often to learn more about this online community and its official launch date.
The IndigenousClimateHub.ca is a unique online community of Indigenous climate change leaders that have come together to share their stories and climate change adaptation experiences. The website is the result of the recommendations brought forward by Indigenous peoples at the Indigenous Climate Change Adaptation Gathering in 2018.
