Janice Matichuk: Life on the Island at the Cache Bay Ranger Station

Janice will speak about life on the island at the Cache Bay Ranger Station on Saganaga Lake in Quetico Park, Ontario. She is now working in her 36th season at the ranger station. Although it seems that the situation is just ‘an office job in the bush’, there are many aspects living there that are out of the ordinary.

Janice began at Cache Bay Ranger Station in 1985. 35 years have gone by with she and her two kids on the island serving the paddling public who enter Quetico for a wilderness canoe trip. She went to college in 1972 in a forestry program and worked in the logging industry. Although this type of education wasn’t required for the position with MNR/Parks. Being self sufficient and confident to work alone was an asset.

All presentations are family friendly and free to the public.

The presentation will be held inside Chik-Wauk Nature Center.

Donations are appreciated.
