NWT bush university trains ‘Indigenous Boreal Guardians’

First Nations students from across the North are training to become leaders in land protection and management as part of a new pilot program in the NWT.

The Indigenous Boreal Guardians training program launched last week at the Dechenla Lodge in the Mackenzie Mountains near the Yukon-NWT border and will finish next March at the Dechinta Bush University Centre for Research and Learning.
