A free event dedicated by Nick Cox in memory of Colleen Anna Cox

 Care about water quality? Want to help collect important data? It’s so much easier than you think!

 Join the River Institute’s October edition of Science + Nature On Tap. This month we will hear from Kat Kavanagh from Water Rangers. As our waterways become increasingly stressed, it is more important than ever for us to know when they need help. Through a fun, interactive demo, we’ll learn how every waterbody is unique and guess some local waterbody locations based off their water chemistry. Then, learn how you can get involved with local groups to start testing! Water Rangers is empowering citizens through simple tools, including water quality test kits and an open data platform, to help fill water quality data gaps across Canada.

 Kat Kavanagh is a passionate environmentalist who believes in the power of technology to transform our relationship with water. In 2015, she co-founded the award-winning non-profit, Water Rangers, and has grown their impact across Canada. Kat is a designer who has worked for the past 15 years on graphics, user-experience, web and game design to create meaningful change through technology, especially in environment and wellness and is now pursuing a Masters in Integrated Water Resource Management at McGill University. When she’s not working on Water Rangers, she’s hiking or swimming with her two dogs at their family cottage.
