World Water Day 2024


🌿 🍃🌲🌱🌏🌱🍃🌲🌿  

 Join us in celebrating World Water Day by recognizing the importance of the Muskeg.  

“Muskeg,” originating from the Ininímowin (maskek) and Anishinaabemowin (mashkiig) languages, refers to a northern landscape characterized by a wet environment, abundant vegetation, and peat moss deposits. It encompasses various wetlands in the boreal zone, including bogs, fens, swamps, and mires. These peatlands cover around 1.2 million km2 in Canada, constituting 12% of the country’s surface area.
