What better way to spend a summer day?!

In hip waders and with pens and paper in hand, Mi’kmaq technicians and scientists from Eskasoni, Membertou and Potlotek received Canadian Aquatic Biomonitoring Network (CABIN) training and certification by Environment Canada this summer.

CABIN assesses the condition of rivers. It is a national program for determining the biological health of Canada’s fresh water.

A long-term monitoring program for six rivers in the Bras d’Or Lakes watershed begins this fall.

Funding for training by Maritime and Northeast Pipeline.
