July 10, 2016 The sunny weather on Sunday made for a perfect day to plant some trees along the Porcupine River in South Porcupine. The initiative was organized by the Friends of the Porcupine River Watershed and included volunteers, from left, Mackenzie Campsall, Brooke Kirley, Liah Shaw, Meaghan Stringer, Heidi Etzel and her five-year-old daughter Allie Etzel-Lizotte.
June 21, 2015 2,000 shrubs and trees were planted along the Porcupine River on Highway 101 in South Porcupine and on Pearl Lake behind the McIntyre Arena in Schumacher thanks to the efforts of Meaghan Stringer, pictured, and other volunteers with the Friends of The Porcupine River Watershed. The event took place on Saturday afternoon where Stringer, who is also a youth steward ranger for the Ministry of Natural Resources, helped plant vegetation to increase biodiversity and repair damage that has been done along the watershed from mining and human activity.
