Appendix 11: Public

Appendix 11: Public Outreach and Stage 2 Update Consultation Activities The NPCA continues to serve as a local client services centre for Niagara River RAP inquires and educational information, and where RAP reports, documents and files are maintained. Since taking on the role of RAP coordinator, the NPCA has been administering public outreach programs and communicating RAP-related program information to stakeholders and the public (including local school children). This outreach includes the production and distribution of fact sheets and educational information, media coverage, display materials, reports and publications. In addition to RAP PowerPoint presentations, other general ones have been developed on the themes of water conservation, the ecosystem and wetlands, and restoration and water quality. As a component of the NPCA’s Eco-school program carried out throughout the watershed, these educational topics highlight the benefits of water quality improvement and habitat restoration which compliment and support RAP targets and deliverables.

RAP Display Events Niagara Children’s Water Festival The Niagara Children’s Water Festival is an annual September event attended by over 4,600 Grade 3 and 4 students, teachers and parent volunteers from throughout the Niagara River watershed. These attendees participate in a variety of activities focused on water conservation, water attitude, water technology, water protection and water science. The 4-day event is a joint initiative with the NPCA, Niagara Region, Ontario Power Generation and other partners. Since 2007, a “Public Day” has been added to the event when the entire community is invited to come out and learn how to contribute to a healthier environment. 128
