This national call occured on  Friday, June 19th at 4 pm EST.

Our three mentors Jennifer, Samantha and Zihan invited Kat Kavanagh, executive director of Water Rangers to speak about topics in water pollution as a conservation threat. 

Kat thrives on continual learning, thinking and designing. She encourages citizens to engage with water testing and data collection. The goal of Water Rangers is to build the tools to help citizens and scientists easily record and analyze water data. The date would be used to learn about problems, share discoveries and engage with neighbors.

Kat will be elaborating on Water Rangers test kits, data and the impact on the larger community. She will also be speaking about volunteer opportunities as well as the possibility of using one of the kits in your projects.

The national call will be delivered in English but there will be a linguistic support for native French speakers. 

If you have any questions for about participating, please contact Zihan: [email protected]
