Educational objectives of the Interpretation Centre

As managers of the Baskatong Reservoir Community Wildlife Area, our mission is to educate the public. The Walleye Interpretation Centre became the hub of this mission in 2006.

The Walleye Interpretation Centre was set up in order to increase visitor knowledge and awareness. Our goal is to develop and sustain interest in various fields, such as biology, the environment, pisciculture, human interventions and their impact on wildlife and its natural habitats.

Using walleye sport fishing as a concrete example, young people can be shown how they can, with small acts, contribute to sustaining and respecting the resource and, more broadly, nature.

The CWA with its Walleye Interpretation Centre is an ideal place to jump in feet first into the adventure of managing an ecosystem. Simple explanations and a dynamic graphic style that uses cartoon characters bring the young people into the world of the walleye. They also help them to understand the importance of the various regulations governing sport fishing and the need to treat wildlife responsibly.
