|Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update|
Thanks for thinking of us here at the RiverWatch Institute of Alberta. We’d like you to know that, unfortunately, all our on-water programs are suspended for the full duration of 2020 (including School Programs) and only the CreekWatch Citizen Science Program is operating. Like everyone these days, we’re learning how to adapt and meet COVID-19 public health and safety expectations. Cheers to better days ahead, and there’s nothing we’d like better than to resume on-river programming with you in 2021. If we can be of assistance in the meantime, though, please feel welcome to contact us. Thank you for your past and future support of our programs!
The multiple award-winning RiverWatch Institute of Alberta has been a non-profit registered charity delivering some of Canada's best watershed education programs since 1995 - 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 real-world to experience an interesting mix of ecology, wildlife, history, geology, engineering, technology, industry, water quality monitoring and data collection. Our programs showcase rivers like nothing participants have ever seen before and create an experience they’ll never forget! Over the years, nearly 150,000 participants have adventured out with us on six of Alberta’s major waterways. And now, hopefully, you as well!
The RiverWatch Institute of Alberta is a registered Canadian charity delivering award-winning science education programs, environmental awareness and guided river experiences on and along Alberta’s rivers and creeks. Through the use of raft float trips, stewardship activities, portable water quality labs and other opportunities, program participants learn the ecology and importance of Alberta waterways. By delivering and sharing watershed knowledge in memorable ways, we assist Albertans of all walks of life to better understand, enjoy and care for a sustainable environment.
