Every summer (usually in the last week of July) A-Tlegay field technicians and biologists provide a fun filled week for the youth of our member nations. The camp provides an education about the modern science our technicians employ as well as traditional knowledge about our territories. Typically the camp will give attendees experience with crab surveys, clam surveys, salmon species identification and traditional salmon smoking and preservation techniques.
National Aboriginal Day takes place on June 21. It is a special day to celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. A-Tlegay supports this special day with an educational booth and fun games for our youth.
