You are invited to visit the National Water Centre in Saint John, New Brunswick. The Centre is Canada’s only facility dedicated to celebrating the influence of water on our culture. Krystyn Tully of Swim Drink Fish Canada/ Lake Ontario Waterkeeper will give an overview of the Centre, its mission, and current programs. She’ll describe how Kenneth and Tasha Irving came to donate the Centre to Swim Drink Fish Canada, with the assistance of RBC Blue Water Project, and how it serves as a catalyst for national efforts to preserve our water heritage. Following the brief introduction, field trip participants will be free to walk the forest trails, canoe or kayak on the river, or enjoy the beach, deck, or indoor sitting areas.
