Seminar Feb 1 7pm--Ottawa River Watershed

The presentation will be an introduction to the watershed of the Ottawa River with a bit of a focus on aquatic invasive and endangered species to look out for. Renée will also talk about the Ottawa Riverkeeper organization and the work that they do.

Renée is a recent graduate of Queen's University with a BA in Art History. She is returning to the Ottawa Riverkeeper team once again having spent a previous summer as the Communications Intern. Renée now fills the role of Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator and looks forward to connecting with volunteers and healthy water enthusiasts. She grew up along the water and learned to sail from a young age, inspiring an appreciation for a healthy water’s edge. Spending her summers out on the Gatineau and Ottawa rivers, Renée had the opportunity to visit, compete and coach in various amazing locations.
