We were fortunate to take a group of NWT officials, including the territorial minister of the Environment and Natural Resources, researchers and community leaders on a tour of our Scotty Creek Research Site. It was a great opportunity to showcase our research and highlight its importance to the entire region. Thank you to everyone who made this tour possible.
