Our next event is on January 18th!  Don’t miss it!


Biologist Katy Alambo will present an introduction to the watershed and Ottawa Riverkeeper, our organization and the work they do, with a bit of a focus on aquatic invasive species.


As Ottawa Riverkeeper’s Biologist, Katy leads a number of Community Science initiatives providing everyday people with opportunities to learn more about the world around them. Katy has been featured in television, radio, and print, sharing information about biodiversity and water quality in the Ottawa River watershed, and the steps that people can take to help protect it.

Prior to joining Riverkeeper, Katy attended the universities of Waterloo and Ottawa where she completed her B.Sc.H and M.Sc. in biology, respectively. Her research has focused on the production of harmful algal blooms in Canadian freshwaters. Katy loves all activities around the water, be it swimming or paddling, exploring the natural flora and fauna, or just relaxing by the shore.


We will meet at 7:00pm at the Greenboro Community Centre. This will be a hybrid Google Meet meeting for those who wish to join remotely. email if you wish to attend remotely


Hope to see as many of you in attendance!

Hybrid Virtual and In-Person



We know that a lot of us miss the in-person meetings, and look forward to getting out and about. We also know that many of you do not yet feel comfortable in meeting in-person. So we will be trying out having both. If you wish to join virtually, you can, and you will see and hear everything going on in the meeting from the comfort of your own home. This will be the first time we have done this, so please bare with us if we have some issues. Comments after the meeting are welcome afterwards to help us improve the experience by emailing
