We're inspired. You will be too.
We got together with some #swimdrinkfish fans who have been influenced by the Cousteau family - a family that's earned the right to speak about water. The outcome - a fun, short video about clean water and watersheds, in advance of Alexandra Cousteau's talk at the University of Guelph on "Putting Watersheds First".
Join us on June 16th, 2014. Get inspired about water and your watershed.
7:00 - 9:30 PM, Rozanski Hall, University of Guelph.
Tickets are on dale at the Bookshelf, Thomas Video and online at: http://groundswellconference.com/alexandra-cousteau-putting-watersheds-first/

Mark Mattson from Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and Mike Nagy of Wellington Water Watchers will provide opening remarks and situate us in the context of local watersheds.
