Save Our Seine wishes to thank Leigh Anne Parry for creating and offering this unique event during our 25th Anniversary year.

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

Save Our Seine is currently seeking four energetic and physically fit youth (ages 16 to 29) to become River Keepers for the SOS Green Team. These seasonal positions are ideal for anyone who enjoys working in the outdoors and wants to help keep the Seine River clean. Deadline for applications is May 1, 2015.
Save Our Seine is working with the Louis Riel School Division to deliver a hands-on education program related to water. To learn more about how you can participate in Waterways, start by viewing this short video produced by Harry Bell at the LRSD.
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.
Throughout 2015, Save Our Seine will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary. A series of educational and recreational events and activities are being planned. Events will highlight the natural, cultural, and historical features found along the length of the Seine River greenway from the city limits/floodway to the mouth of the river where it enters the Red. Each event is being championed by a volunteer or group of volunteers. Let us know if you would like to get involved in planning or hosting an event in your area. More volunteers are always welcome.
Be sure to check here and the SOS Facebook page for future events as they are announced.
