Delta Days take centre stage at U of S

SASKATOON - The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) at the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) is hosting Delta Days this week, a three-day workshop involving community members (land users, elders, youth, leaders), university researchers, and other partners.

The workshop brings together people from the Peace-Athabasca Delta (Alberta), Saskatchewan River Delta (Saskatchewan/Manitoba) and Slave River Delta (Northwest Territories) to discuss issues related to the changes they are seeing in their delta and communities, such as upstream development, water fluctuations and wildlife populations.

Participants will create a traveling exhibit, featuring photographs, art, research findings, wordclouds, interactive displays and other visual elements. Members of the media and the general public are invited to attend the following Delta Days events:
