Developing a River Rapport
As part of the Great River Rapport, the St. Lawrence River Institute hosts a Community Science Day May 29 and 30 at the Ontario Power Generation Visitor Centre in Cornwall.
At 10 a.m. May 29, keynote speaker Elizabeth Hendricks, Vice-President of the National Freshwater Program at WWFCanada, one of Canada’s oldest conservation organizations, will address the meeting.
F. Henry Lickers, Director of the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, Department of the Environment for the past 32 years and now the Environmental Science Officer, will speak at 10:30 a.m. May 30.
The Great River Rapport is seeking input from all scientists and data holders for the Upper St. Lawrence River region (from Cape Vincent/Kingston to Lake St. Francis). The workshop is intended to produce a summary of the ecological research datasets that exist for the region and to identify representative ecological indicators for The Great River Rapport.
