On May 30, 2018 Geoff presented highlights from the Canada C3 expedition at the River Institute’s 25th Annual Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River Ecosystem Sympoisum.
The conference theme was ‘Sharing Knowledge ~ Linking Sciences’. “This theme celebrates the River Institute’s founding partners and neighbours, the Mohawks of Akwesasne, and highlights projects and programs that link ecosystem science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK). The River Institute seeks to develop a heightened awareness of the value of TEK and the stories that define our history as important pathways to engage people in environmental issues and inspire scientific inquiry and research.
Geoff’s presentation touched on many of the Institute’s same priorities of connecting communities, science, and Indigenous culture through our waterways. Thank you to the River Institute for the opportunity to share the Canada C3 journey with your audience!
