Frost Campus hosting Ontario Rangers

Lindsay, ON – July 23, 2012 – With activities such as Arboriculture/Tree Climbing and Outdoor Safety and Survival Skills on the agenda, Fleming College’s Frost Campus will once again host a group of Ontario Rangers for a series of workshops on Wednesday, July 25 and Thursday, July 26, 2012.

It is the sixth year the campus has hosted this workshop for the Ontario Ranger program.

Approximately 100 Rangers will participate in a number of workshops that include Geocaching, Insects and Aquatic Health, Traditional Aboriginal Elder’s Teaching, and NR Law Enforcement – Crime Scene Investigation, among others. Fleming’s expert instructors run the sessions, which focus on natural resource management, hands-on learning, and team-building exercises.

The Rangers represent a portion of the high school students the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) hires annually to work for eight weeks. The Rangers’ work is part of the MNR’s natural resource management projects that support biodiversity and combat climate change across Ontario.
