On behalf of the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun, Na-Cho Nyäk Dun Development Corporation, and Yukon Seed & Restoration, we would like to acknowledge thank you for your generous sponsorship of The Seed Collection Workshops hosted in Mayo, Yukon.
The two workshops were a tremendous success, with 21 community members participating in the events. These weekend-long trainings were open to all community members in Mayo to develop skills and knowledge in seed collection, the role of native plant species, restoration and revegetation, and traditional knowledge related to local ecology and plant species. Participants, facilitators, and Elders also shared ideas and practices in how to use native plant seeds for reclamation of disturbed sites, backyard landscaping, and climate change adaptation. In particular, the skills and knowledge developed in these two workshops will be used to support the Keno Hill Reclamation Project. These workshops are also a crucial first step towards building out a bigger training and skills development program in the community and wider region in following years. May this letter serve as a receipt document of your donation of $5,165.00 towards the events, which included facilitators, catering, transportation, and learning materials for participants. Thank you again for your generous support and we look forward to working with you to create this exciting community-based skills development opportunity!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Helaina Moses (email@example.com) or Jani Djokic (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
