Molded by glaciers and lava flows, the Horsefly district is a huge 800,000 HA that encompasses farmlands, pasture, forests, meadows, lakes, creeks, and valleys. This beautiful region has an unlimited potential for fun, discovery and adventure.

Residents and visitors enjoy year-round recreation: snowmobiling and sailing, ice-fishing and picnicking, hunting and river-rafting, camping and rock-climbing. Thousands of visitors come to the Horsefly area every year, as well as tourists from the US, Europe and Asia.

Sites Worth Visiting

Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association - CanTRA

Vanessa The Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association is the National Sports organization for Therapeutic Riding and riders with a disability in Canada. "CanTRA" is a non-profit organization providing support to individuals and groups through education, certification, insurance coverage, communication and accreditation.

The Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association, a registered charity, was formed in 1980. Committed to promoting challenge and achievement for young people and adults with disabilities through the use of the horse, the organization has grown to almost one hundred member riding centres across Canada.

Therapeutic Riding is a form of therapy using horses to help persons with disabilities, the disabilities range from physical through learning and even emotional disabilities.

Many riders experience a connection to the horse that few sports can create. For those riders who cannot walk, the horse is their feet, their vehicle of transport. Not only does this help raise their self-esteem but it also teaches them essential skills. It improves balance, creates trust and creates a friendship between rider and horse.

World Agricultural Information Centre

Double Rainbow Disseminating information about any subject to a broad range of constituents and concerned parties and organizations can be a formidable task, no matter what the medium might be. This website is designed to achieve just that goal for agriculture, and it has a mandate from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.

The World Agricultural Information Centre (WAICENT) is designed to provide a framework for disseminating agricultural information. In many ways functions as a portal, collecting links to relevant websites and documents through a series of topical and subtopical headings. Given the sheer amount of material here, visitors will take comfort to learn that the site�s homepage features a �Highlights� section that draws their attention to new additions, such as the FAO Tsunami Portal.

Additionally, visitors can take advantage of a sophisticated search engine offered here, or just browse around through such topics as agroindustry and forest management.

CAFA members, include among others: accountants, lawyers, financial planners, bankers, insurance agents, home economists, family coaches, real estate agents, agrologists and farmers.

Since January 2001, CAFA has developed local chapters across the country-from BC through to Ontario. The local chapters hold monthly meetings that offer members an opportunity to learn about a variety of topics that farm advisors need to know, such as new government policy, agricultural issues that impact the advice they provide and further enrich their own resources by learning from the expertise that members from other disciplines can share.

In addition to the educational aspect, meetings offer networking opportunities with other professionals dealing with farm clients.

Millennium Seed Bank Project

flower

A number of organizations have developed a concerted interest in establishing seed banks to protect the wide diversity of existing plant life for future generations.

The Royal Botanic Gardens is currently working on their own project, whose ultimate goal is to collect 24,000 plant species. So far, they have successfully secured samples from almost all of the native flowering plants in the United Kingdom, and their work continues on in the present day. Many visitors to the site will want to peruse their homepage and the helpful graphic (a peapod) helps orient first-time visitors to the various sections on the site, such as �Solving Seed Problems� and their publications and data area.

The site also includes a field manual for those who would like to collect their own seeds in the field as well as data about the seeds collected thus far in the Seed Information Database.
