|RiverWatch is honoured to be an Organizational Recipient of the NSERC Award for Science Promotion|
The NSERC Awards for Science Promotion honour individuals and groups that are inspirational in the way they promote science to the general public, and are an opportunity for Canada's science community to recognize, support and encourage outstanding science promoters.
Congratulations to everyone involved with 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!
