Canada Water Week Kicks Off In Yellowknife

Canada Water Week is launching this Sunday in Yellowknife.

The water event is an opporunity to celebrate water and how it nourishes our life, says Brenda Van Hauvart, Water Specialist at Ecology North.

This year the event will start with the annual fish fry at the snow castle at Yellowknife Bay at 1pm. There will also be lectures and film screenings.

Van Hauvart says celebrating water allows people to focus on our innate connection to it.

Really we would like to celebrate and just think about the many different ways in which water nourishes our lives and is important to us. And how can be a better [stewards] and protect our waters- especially in the Northwest Territories there is a strong connection to the land and the water.

Canada Water Week will run from March 18th to the 24th.

More information can be found on the Ecology North Facebook page.
