North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper is launching a new water literacy program in Edmonton. Beginning in spring 2017, a full-time coordinator at Riverkeeper will help local residents discover the watershed, find swimmable water, and document local water knowledge.

The coordinator is part of a water literacy network established by Swim Drink Fish Canada in 2017, with hubs in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Toronto. The project is made possible by the Edmonton TELUS Community Board.
