Are you looking for a great way to give back to your community, meet new people, and enjoy the sunshine this summer?

Simon Fraser University and Swim Drink Fish are partnering up to better understand the connection four communities in Vancouver have with their nearby waters. We are looking for volunteers to help survey park-goers at New Brighton Park, Harbour Green Park (Coal Harbour), and Waterfront Park (North Vancouver). The survey will help understand people's relationship to the water, barriers to access water, and how we may improve water access in these neighbourhoods.

Volunteer shifts will be on evenings and weekends!

If you are interested in volunteering for this project, but are unable to make this training, please contact us at madeleine@swimdrinkfish.ca !

Mission Statement

Connection leads to protection. It reads simple, but if you go beneath the surface of that sentence, we find a solution to issues and problems we’ve known about for over a century. The simple act of connecting people to water is the greatest action we can take; it is the catalyst in empowering a community to protect its water. Our vision of creating access to swimmable, drinkable, fishable water for everyone begins and ends with connection. It’s the action of protection that becomes the journey. It is our programs that will take you on that journey of protecting what you love. We work at the confluence of people, water, and storytelling. Our programs connect people to the water’s edge, and with technology, we use communications tools to help tell the stories to empower a movement of people working to protect and create access to swimmable, drinkable, fishable water for everyone.

Description

Swim Drink Fish works at the confluence of water, people, and storytelling, using community science, technology, and communications to connect people to water. Through a network of Community Water Monitoring Hubs, Swim Drink Fish has inspired, and continues to inspire, people to know and safeguard their local waters. Swim Drink Fish initiatives are active in 171 communities in 11 countries.
