Our program is funded through donations and grants so you can sign up with us for no up-front cost. We only ask that you consider a donation at the end of each year to help us continue our goal of providing long-term environmental monitoring services to the Haliburton region for many years to come. The bulk of our monitoring efforts are carried out by undergraduate students from Trent University and Fleming College who partner with us through the U-Links Centre for Community Based Research to carry out sampling and analysis through a number of “credit-for-product” courses. This allows the students to gain critical, real-world experiences while also providing our community with data and recommendations that will ultimately lead to more data-driven decision making.
You can also contact our Program Coordinator, Brendan Martin, at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about the program or discuss a research project idea. We are fairly flexible so if you have an idea that doesn’t fit neatly into what WWEW does already we may still be able to assist you.
