ROSEBANK -- If you got lost in the woods, how would you find your way out? Look for a brook, Loretta Ross instructs.

Besides assisting the Cascumpec Bay Watershed Association with tree-planting and stream enhancement, the Native Council of P.E.I. project hosted youth for plant and wildlife identification and outdoor survival sessions.
Ross coordinated a seven-week project for the Native Council of P.E.I., assisting the Cascumpec Bay Watershed Association with tree-planting and other activities.
The Native Council project also included an educational component, teaching area youth about plants, animals and survival.
“There’s everything back here,” Ross said during a recent session in which she and project workers helped nine area youth identify plants and unique characteristics around the CBWA’s Profit’s Pond facility.
The children also posted their names beside trees they planted. Ross hopes they will return some day to observe how their trees have grown.
As for finding the way out of the woods if lost, “all the brooks lead somewhere,” Ross advised, explaining that following a brook will lead one to safety.
