Name: Lakefield Horticultural Society: Cathy Dueck - Youth & the Natural World
Date: October 9, 2018
Event Description:
Join the Lakefield Horticultural Society at the Lakefield Marshland Centre on Tuesday, Oct 9th at 7pm for a talk by Cathy Dueck. Her presentation is on "Youth and the Natural World."

Cathy Dueck is a lifelong naturalist who has been gardening since she was 19. A graduate of Trent University in Environmental Science, Cathy’s passion is teaching about land stewardship in its many forms. Cathy is the founder of Peterborough’s Ecology Park which she directed for more than 20 years.  Over the years, she has worked as a schoolyard consultant for Evergreen, a shoreline consultant for the Friends of the Trent-Severn Waterway, a guest speaker for horticultural societies, universities and colleges, and developed a range of programs for the public including environmental education for children and community-based urban forestry.
Currently Cathy is working on an initiative called  "Pathway to Stewardship and Kinship." It is a community-based strategy whose goal is teach children to care for each other, the land, the water and all of the life forms with which we share with this planet. It is based on the Ontario Curriculum and every stage of a child's development.
The members and guests of The Lakefield Horticultural Society are looking forward to learning more about this initiative.
