From the Seat of a Canoe – Saturday, October 3

Save Our Seine wishes to thank Leigh Anne Parry for creating and offering this unique event during our 25th Anniversary year. The “river performances” will take place on the banks of the Seine River – with the audience drifting by in canoes. Each performance is 1 hour in length. You can register for one of four performances that begin at 3 p.m., 4 p.m., 5 p.m., or 6 p.m. See the poster for more details: 2015 From the Seat of a Canoe – Performance

Getting Started in the LRSD Waterways Program

Save Our Seine is happy to share its expertise regarding the Seine River and will support Waterways in any or all of the following ways.

  • Teacher training and support
  • Classroom presentations about the Seine River and its wildlife (warm-ups)
  • Assistance with guided walks along the river trails with your class
  • Assistance with delivery of in-class components (water quality testing, invertebrate identification)
  • Assistance with field trips to the Seine River (our extra volunteers can help with river activities)
  • Follow-up with your class after the field trip (summarizing and interpreting the data that was collected, assistance with data entry to share results with others)

We look forward to working with you and your class to increase awareness of the value of neighbourhood Waterways.
