Atlantic DataStream’s regional partner, Community Based Environmental Monitoring Network, is rebranding its water work under the “Atlantic Water Network.” We’re excited to reveal their new logo and branding on Tuesday June 7 at the Atlantic DataStream Kickoff event in Halifax, NS.

Atlantic Water Network (AWN) was founded in 2004 by Dr. Cathy Conrad of Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. AWN works to increase environmental stewardship capacity in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.

AWN provide support and resources to organizations across Atlantic Canada including equipment loans from the  Environmental Equipment Bank, free  WET-PRO training workshops  and, of course, providing open-access data about freshwater health through their regional Atlantic DataStream partnership.
