Kaleidoscope Canada was created on the land of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak and Attawandaron peoples. We recognize the Indigenous peoples whose land we reside on in the geopolitical nation known as Canada.
This land has been stewarded and safeguarded for millennia by the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit. Kaleidoscope is committed to working in collaboration with the Indigenous peoples of this land and taking their lead in safeguarding it for the future.
Kaleidoscope Nature was born out of a desire to create a space for the Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) community who recreate and work in the Canadian outdoors! Diversity is something that is often lacking when you head out in nature and take a look around.
Whether you're an environmental scientist or just someone who loves to get outside we all share a common goal! To know, love, and protect the natural spaces we all cherish.
This space is a chance for us all to connect with each other and share our experiences in the great outdoors as a community!
WHAT WE DO
We aim to showcase the diversity of those in the Canadian outdoors. From scientists to outdoor recreationists and beyond. We believe it is incredibly important to provide representation for others wishing to join the outdoor community and the natural sciences in Canada.
The primary goal of Kaleidoscope Nature is to provide a space for the BIPOC community in Canada. This is a place where we can connect with each other and share our ideas and experiences in the Canadian outdoors.
