Upper St Lawrence River Protection Network

The Upper St Lawrence River Protection Network is the creation of Karen Cooper at the St. Lawrence River Institute for Environmental Studies in Cornwall. The Network serves as a resource for coordination and distribution of river-related research and mitigation information; encourages existing and future ongoing research, education and remediation on both sides of the river; and, serves as a voice to foster an environmentally balanced and sustainable approach to recreation and development.

Listen this week on Blue Fish Radio as the Network’s Chair Patricia O’Hara and Host Lawrence Gunther discuss the work of the Network as it responded to the sinking of two tugs on the river, the two Great Canadian shoreline clean-ups that already pulled over 20 tons of garbage out of the River, and what it’s like for Lawrence when he SCUBA’s blind.
