Swim, Drink, & Fish Public Information Session and North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper Introduction

November 17, 2010 - 2:00am to 4:00am

Presenter: Michael G. Sullivan, Ph.D., Provincial Fisheries Science Specialist, Fish and Wildlife Division, Sustainable Resource Development

Dr. Sullivan will deliver a highly visual, practical and interactive presentation and discussion on the present and future of our ability to swim, drink and fish in the Capital Region and areas upstream and downstream.  Dr. Sullivan's presentation is based on research funded by the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance (NSWA) titled, Cumulative Effects Assessment of the North Saskatchewan River Watershed using ALCES (click for Executive Summary and link to complete report).

NSWA desired to gain a better understanding of long-term, cumulative impacts of development on the watershed, and to highlight potential conflicts between development and sustainability.  The NSWA engaged the ALCES© Group to undertake a high-level, strategic and exploratory cumulative effects modeling for the NSRB. 

Dr. Sullivan's presentation and discussion focuses on the cumulative effects as they translate to our ability to swim, drink, and fish under 4 different scenarios for future development.

There will be lots of time for questions and discussion. Come Join Us!

Hosted by Glenn Isaac of the North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper (NSRK). Glenn will provide a brief introduction of the NSRK. 

At 7:00PM, we will host a reception with beverages and snacks prior to the to the presentation at 7:30PM. RSVP Glenn at [email protected].ca
