Adventure - RiverWatch

PROGRAMS

The multiple award-winning RiverWatch Institute of Alberta is a non-profit registered charity delivering some of Canada's best watershed education programs - the namesake RiverWatch School Program; CreekWatch Citizen Science; Summer River Ambassador Outreach; and Youth Climate Leadership Challenge.  With a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), participants explore their local river ecosystem and have the opportunity to join a raft float trip. Rafting adventures take everyone into the natural world to experience an interesting mix of ecology, wildlife, history, geology, engineering, science and data collection. Our programs showcase rivers like nothing participants have ever seen before and create an experience they’ll never forget!

Science

All RiverWatch programs engage participants in authentic science. We provide the tools and instruction that help answer the question “How healthy is my creek or river? Through first-hand data collection and observation, participants generate their own conclusions!

River Map - RiverWatch

"RiverWatch delivers science education, environmental awareness and adventures on and along Alberta’s rivers and creeks. Through the use of river float trips and portable water quality labs, program participants learn the science and stewardship of Alberta waterways. By becoming more watershed knowledgeable, Albertans of all walks of life can better understand, enjoy and care for a sustainable environment!"
